Give a Regular Gift to Support Derby Museums’ Endowment

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 2022 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.

To make the most of this match funding opportunity we need help from everyone. During the period of the National Lottery Heritage Fund match funding award, every pound donated will be doubled. With Gift Aid and the match funding your donations soon add up!



We appreciate that some of our supporters may have personally been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, though if you are able to consider making a regular gift to our Endowment during the last 22 months of our Endowment challenge, your gift can make even more of a difference. It is a great way to support our future resilience so that we can continue to conserve our wonderful collections and serve our local community with free exhibitions, activities and events.

  • You can contribute £275 by giving £5 per month
  • Giving £10 per month means you can raise a fantastic £550
  • An incredible £2750 would result from a gift of £50 per month.

If you are a higher rate tax payer you can reclaim the difference between the rate of tax you pay and the basic rate on your donation. So a regular gift of £10 per month would be at a net monthly cost to you of £7.50 per month and a gift of £50 per month would be a net monthly cost of £37.50 to you.

The sooner your monthly donations start, the sooner they will be match funded to start benefiting Derby Museums.

If you can consider supporting Derby Museums in this way, please click to donate a monthly gift of £5£10£15 or £20. If you prefer to consider a different amount or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact who will be more than happy to help. All gifts are very gratefully received.
