The gallery rental fee goes towards the yearly rental of the gallery space from the Yeats Society. The 10% commission is for gallery upkeep. The staffing of the gallery is provided by Tús employees under contract to Sligo LEADER Partnership.

In 2016 the gallery received some funding support from Sligo County Council. To date this funding has been used to support emerging artists’ programmed exhibitions in the reduction of rental cost.
