Make a Donation

Donations to the Tramway Museum Society are always welcome. We are a registered charity and museum and although we charge an entrance fee to cover our staffing and running costs, large and small projects, including tramcar restoration often require help via donations to undertake. We are enormously grateful for any donation as this enables us to continue to develop and protect the work we have done for over 50 years at Crich.

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.
