Donations

The generosity of our donors is vital in helping us interpret and preserve our collection for all to enjoy. We are grateful for any donation of any size.

We are currently fundraising for our Medal Room improvement project. 

There are a number of ways you can donate

Online

Help raise funds for the museum while you shop online via Easy Fundraising – there’s a whole range of retailers, including John Lewis and Amazon.  All you need to do is register and select the museum as your recipient.

By phone

To donate using your debit or credit card over the telephone, call us on 01748 826561.

By cheque

Make cheques payable to ‘The Green Howards Trust’ and post to The Green Howards Museum, Trinity Church Square, Richmond, North Yorkshire, DL10 4QN.

Please include a contact telephone number so that we can contact you for Gift Aid details.

In person

Please ask to see the Director or Assistant Curator when you visit the museum.

Wall plaques

Our staircase fundraising appeal was so successful that we are continuing to recognise donors with wall plaques.  If you are able to £500 or more, why not consider this option?

By making gifts or leaving a legacy

We are only able to accept material associated with The Green Howards or, in certain circumstances, the Yorkshire Regiment.  If you are thinking about donating material to the museum, please read our collections policy and then contact us.

By donating land, shares or property to us, you are entitled to tax relief.
You can find more information about donating land, buildings or shares to charity on the HM Revenue & Customs website. If you have any doubts, contact a professional such as an IFA, accountant or solicitor.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider adding Gift Aid to your donation. Gift Aid is a simple and effective way to make your donation tax effective, enabling the museum to increase the value of your gift by 25p in every pound, at no extra cost to you.

When you visit the museum we will ask you if you would like to Gift Aid your admission.

You can find more information about Gift Aid on the HM Revenue & Customs website.

Donors, unless they wish to remain anonymous, will be acknowledged in a donors’ book displayed in the museum.
