Donations, however big or small, help us look after and create more remote access to the collections now and for the future.
YOUR SUPPORT IS VITAL TO THE FUTURE OF THE MUSEUM
Did you know that The Museum is an independent charity that receives no regular public funding? It costs £568 a day to care for and connect people with our magnificent collections in-person and online. Visitors and our shop support half of our costs. We seek donations for the remainder from the generosity of supporters like yourselves, Friends, trusts and foundations, and companies.
We really need your support to help us continue to inspire, surprise and delight people locally and across the world with Worcester’s impressive porcelain heritage, for today and for future generations. Please donate if you can.
If you choose to Gift Aid your donation, we receive another 25p for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to yourself, if you are a UK tax payer. All you need to do is let us know when you make your donation online or at The Museum when you visit.
The last two years have been extremely challenging for the Museum, as they have been for so many. We worked hard to access emergency funding during the pandemic and now are doing everything we can to build back visitor confidence, involve people in our new Paint-Your-Own-Pottery activities and seek funding for important projects to share our collection as widely as possible.
HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS
£10 could support staff to answer one enquiry about Worcester porcelain that we receive from all over the world.
£25 could photograph an object and archive material to preserve them and create digital content so that we can reach more people online.
£50 could fund the contents of an explorer backpack for families and schools to borrow, helping to engage young people with Worcester’s porcelain heritage.
£120 is enough to assist specialist research in our collections for a day, so that we can increase understanding of our design and social history.
£1,000 is enough to involve local artists in developing playful heritage sessions for our Pop-up Museum linked to our collections so that we can involve people in creative wellbeing activities, such as families, schools and groups experiencing loneliness and isolation.
