Make a Donation

Donations to the Tramway Museum Society are always welcome. The Tramway Museum Society is a registered charity and operates Crich Tramway Village. We rely on entrance fees to cover our staffing and running costs. Like other charities, we are enormously grateful for any donation as this enables us to continue to protect the work we have done for over 50 years at Crich and continue with restorations.

How the money will be used

If you select ‘No preference’ your money will be used in an unrestricted way, where the Society is not required to spend the money on any particular project. This is obviously helpful in enabling the money to be put to immediate use, either by itself or, for bigger projects, together with moneys received from similar donations.

You can select to donate to specific projects such as those indicated in the drop-down menu above. The money will then only be used for that project or area.

The General Museum fund is used for smaller projects as the Society considers appropriate. These may include projects relating to tramcar restoration, maintenance of the physical infrastructure of the operational tramway, new buildings, library and archive projects, replacement of existing exhibits or the funding of new ones, street developments, street furniture and fixtures, trees, and the development of areas such as the woodland walk, picnic areas and similar.

If you are a tax payer and can Gift Aid, please complete our Gift Aid form. This will increase your donation by 25p for every £1.

Items for donation

We apologise, but we are unable to accept items such as artefacts, clothing, books and memorabilia at this time. Please feel free to contact us at the end of the year and we will advise of the situation at that time.

Thank you for your time in reading this and we hope you will be able to assist us by making a donation.
