Make a Donation

As a charity, we rely on support from visitors and other individuals, trusts, foundations, public organisations and the corporate sector. This support helps us achieve our mission: to inspire all to explore and enjoy the arts, heritage and outstanding places we care for by visiting our museums and by participating in a wide range of activities.

Whatever the size of your donation, you will help local communities and create new experiences for local people and visitors to Cumbria. Larger donations can support the conservation of our collection or our innovative learning programme that engages with local communities and schools.

Support our work by making a one off donation, or give monthly, by clicking below. Every donation of any amount will make a difference.
