Make a donation
Ware Museum is an independent museum that relies on grants and donations for its continued existence. We do not charge an admission fee. Every donation is important to the museum. Money donated is used entirely for the upkeep of the museum artefacts, exhibitions, equipment and buildings.
How to donate
Remember Ware Museum in your will
The Trust is constantly striving to raise funds from local and national grant-giving bodies but they almost always require “match-funding” or the grants can only be used short-term. It is vital that the Trust has an adequate fund of its own to maintain, provide for emergencies, and cover the costs of improvements.
What to do
You could consider a Specific Legacy or a Residual Bequest. Your solicitor would be pleased to advise you on the correct wording.
