Weald & Downland Living Museum

Donate: Endowment Appeal

Our new £1 million Endowment Appeal, will help us ensure we safeguard our fantastic historic buildings.

The Museum has been very fortunate to secure an offer of match funding, support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), for ALL donations to support the conservation of our buildings through a new Museum Conservation Endowment Fund. Find out more and donate here.

Double your money

This means that a donation of £50 will be matched by £50 from the HLF, £1,000 by £1,000 and so on, up to a total of £500,000 – making the final result £1 million.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a lasting legacy, ensuring that our 50+ historic buildings are cared for in perpetuity. Our collections are Designated by the Government as one of a few selected outstanding collections in the UK.

How to donate

If you would like to make a donation of any size, knowing that it will be effectively doubled, we would love to hear from you! Donations through our website also qualify. There’s never been a better time to give a gift to the buildings that you and your family love at the Museum.

If you are a UK taxpayer please do Gift Aid your donation, as the scheme will increase the value of your contribution because the Museum can reclaim the tax (by 25p for every £1).
