Endowment Campaign

We are delighted to have been offered a match funding Endowment Grant of £1m by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which means that every pound you give to Derby Museums Endowment campaign before September 2021 will be doubled, up to a total of £1m, creating a £2m Endowment for Derby Museums. This will help to secure the future of Derby Museums for everyone.


Supporting Derby Museums’ Endowment helps us to:

  • Raise the aspirations of young people to be the makers, artists and thinkers of the future
  • Look after 250,000 heritage objects in our collection
  • Continue supporting 23,000 people who take part in free family activities every year
  • Engage and inspire over 124,000 people a year


Buy an Orrery Pin Badge

You can donate to the Endowment campaign and show your support by buying a specially commissioned and limited Orrery Pin Badge. You can buy one on Derby Museums’ online shop or visit the shop at the Museum and Art Gallery or Pickford’s House.

Every donation is important to us. If you would like to support our Endowment campaign by making a donation, you can do this.

If you would like to find out more about making a one-off donation, leaving a gift in your will or would like to find out other ways you can support the Endowment, please contact Amy at or call 01332 641901. Donations of £500 and above will be featured on our donor recognition board to be displayed in the Museum and Art Gallery.




Every pound you donate online will be doubled by the Heritage Lottery Fund to go towards Derby Museums’ Endowment Fund. Your valuable donation will help to ensure Derby’s important heritage can continue to be enjoyed by everyone now, and for future generations to come.
