A new way for supporters to directly contribute to the long-term sustainability of the organisation, the membership scheme will directly fund all facets of work undertaken by the RAF Museum.
Corporate members receive benefits including the use of the Museum’s exhibition spaces, private events at a discounted rate, and exclusive access to the Patrons Lounge at the RAF Museum in London. Participating businesses also receive invitations to a bi-annual networking event where they can engage with other partner members and RAF stakeholders.
Added bonuses include being able to offer employees complimentary tickets to exhibitions and events.

“The Museum’s corporate membership allows our partners to engage in meaningful ways while supporting the Museum,” explains RAF Museum corporate development manager Charlotte Wallace.
“There are numerous opportunities for corporations to make a difference and show impact in our shared communities, and for the Museum to provide value and benefit for our corporate partners.”
Annual corporate memberships start from £5,000 per annum plus VAT, rising up through a tiered, star-ranked system depending on a company’s budget.
