Support Our Museums


Together we can save the future of our museums. Now is the time to act.

The Museums Association and Crowdfunder have teamed up to launch #SupportOurMuseums, a new UK-wide campaign to support our fantastic museums as they face the huge challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Museums change lives. They increase our sense of wellbeing, help us feel proud of where we have come from, inspire, challenge and stimulate us, and make us feel healthier. They help us understand the past and face the challenges of the future. And they need the support of communities now more than ever.

If your museum is a Museums Association member, you can take part and launch a crowdfunding campaign. Crowdfunder have waived their platform fees, so more of the money raised will go straight to your museum. Whatever the size or location of your museum, this is an opportunity to gain some much-needed support and to amplify your fundraising efforts as part of a UK-wide campaign.

You can sign up by following the link below and start to create a crowdfunding campaign specific to your museum. There is no commitment at this stage and at any point you can decide not to go ahead, but by registering you can find out the resources available and access a free webinar on crowdfunding.
