As a registered charity, we rely on contributions from individuals, trusts, foundations and organisations. Your support helps us deliver learning and participation projects, develop our collections and exhibitions, and help us shape a community venue, accessible to the widest range of audiences.
We gratefully accept donations of any size, however big or small. Every contribution we receive helps to support our future development.
Individuals can build a special relationship with the museum by donating in a number of ways:
- Online – by making a single or monthly donation at Virgin Money Giving. We accept all major credit/debit cards and will automatically add 20% in Gift aid if you are a UK taxpayer
- By post – please send a cheque payable to ‘Museum of East Anglian Life’, to Museum of East Anglian Life, Crowe Street, Stowmarket, IP14 1DL
- In Person – using one of our donation boxes or by making a discretionary donation with any purchases made within the museum
- Leave a legacy – by leaving a gift to the museum in your Will, you will help us continue to engage, inspire and educate our visitors and communities. You can easily add a legacy to your existing Will using a codicil. We recommend that you consult a legal advisor or your solicitor to help you write or update your Will. Leaving a legacy is the most personal donation an individual can make and it will make a huge difference to our work.
Whichever way you choose to donate, gift aid can increase the value of your gift at no extra cost to you.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss your donation. Thank you for your support!
