BECOME A SPONSOR

Aldeburgh Museum is a charity and relies on your support. Developing our varied programme of exhibitions and activities – as well as caring for the collections we hold in trust for the people of Aldeburgh – is expensive.

You can make a real difference by becoming a museum sponsor or making a donation.

MAKE A DONATION

We don’t receive any regular public funding, so we rely on admission fees, shop sales and generous donations from our visitors and supporters.

SPECIAL THANKS

Our transformation project would not have been possible without the generous support of The National Lottery Fund, Aldeburgh Town Council, local business sponsors and numerous individual contributions.
