We were delighted to have been offered a match funding Heritage Endowment Grant of £1m by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which meant that every pound given to Derby Museums’ Endowment campaign before September 2022 was doubled, up to a total of £1 million, creating a £2 million Endowment Fund for Derby Museums. This will help to secure the future of Derby Museums for everyone.
We would like to thank all of our supporters who have so generously backed this campaign, helping us raise the £1 million.
