The Museum of Richmond – Benefactors’ Circle

The Benefactors’ Circle is a group of people who believe firmly in what the Museum represents and seeks to achieve. They want to ensure that as many people as possible, from all backgrounds, can share in our common heritage and experience the unique history of Richmond.  Benefactors commit to an annual contribution of £500 to help secure our goals and pursue the future projects that will develop the Museum.

Currently, we are working on a new interpretation of the display of our collection and the Benefactors’ Circle will provide funding towards this major project. Our long-term aim is to improve the siting of the Museum and we are reviewing the options open to us. The support of the Benefactors’ Circle helps us to sustain our education programmes and variety of workshops that attract so many young people and their families to the Museum as well as supporting our temporary exhibitions.

Benefactors (unless they choose to remain anonymous) will be recognised formally on our website and will be invited to exhibition launches and private views at the Museum as well as other special events that we run. Each year we send them our Impact Report to illustrate the work and achievements of the Museum.

If you are interested in contributing to this local cause and want to ensure its continued success and outreach to all parts of the community it seeks to serve, please feel free to contact the Chair of the Board of Trustees, Hilda Clarke, via curator@museumofrichmond.com. A joining form and further information on the Benefactors’ Circle can also be requested from this address. All contributions are eligible for Gift Aid if made by a UK tax payer.
