Do you share our aim in Making Dorset Proud? This is a wonderful county with a fantastic history, and a Museum with collections equal to some of the best in the UK.
Tomorrow’s Museum for Dorset will transform the Museum, for the collections and for generations of people who want to explore and enjoy its treasures.
There are many ways to give: online, by cheque or bank transfer, a single payment or a regular amount.
You can make a donation to the project here, either one-off or spread over a period of time. Please don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation – it makes it 25% more valuable to the Museum at no extra cost to you.
Cheque or bank transfer
You can download the Gift Aid application via the link below and post it, together with the cheque, to Gabriella Crouch, Development Manager, Dorset County Museum, High Street West, Dorchester DT1 1XA. Please make cheques payable to DNHAS, include your name and address, even if you don’t want your gift to be acknowledged publicly. We will want to say ‘thank you’.
Before you give, and if you’d like to know more about the project and its individual elements, please get in touch.
Your first contact will be Gabby who’ll be able to answer any questions you have by email, on the phone or over a cup of tea.
It will take time, and money
The Heritage Lottery Fund has decided the vision is worthy of national priority and offered a grant of over £10m leaving the Museum a fundraising target of £4.9m. Great progress has been made- nearly £11.74m has already been secured and £1.55m is under negotiation – leaving the final £1.61m to raise.
