The Jim Matthew Camera Collection Trust became a registered charity in March 2020. The board is made up of individuals from the local community in St Monans, Glasgow and England all with a shared interest and passion in the medium and a desire to turn the collection and the building into a visitor attraction and a real community asset.

The collection was amassed by Jim Matthew, as a private collection. His family want to keep the collection together as a memorial to him.

With the support of the Matthew family, the charity will oversee the fundraising and purchasing of the collection, and subsequent maintenance and development of the collection ensuring its safe keeping and home in St Monans and realising the ambition that Jim Matthew had to make it an open attraction to the public.
