Make a Donation
Donations to the Tramway Museum Society are always welcome, especially during the current Corona virus national emergency. 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, so we are not receiving any of this income at the moment. We are seeking help from the government, via their furlough scheme, to cover most of our staffing costs and from other sources of emergency funding. 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, continue with restorations and and to prepare for re-opening later in year when safe to do so.
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.
We have produced a short guide for those interested in leaving a bequest to the Society in their Will. Click here to download the How to Make a Bequest guide.
Thank you for your time in reading this and we hope you will be able to assist us by making a donation.
