Scarborough Museums and Galleries vision is to create warm, accessible and inclusive places, develop exciting learning programmes, events and exhibitions and to develop a real Museum of Scarborough.

To do this we rely on the generous support of donations and grants to support us to enhance our visitors’ experience and tell the story of Scarborough.

Any gift, large or small, makes a real difference in helping us to continue our work with:

  • Caring for our collections for future generations
  • Expanding our exhibitions programme
  • Developing our inspiring learning programmes
  • Increasing our work with young people and communities

Your donations help us to care for the collection for future generations. As a Charitable Incorporated Organisation we are able to raise money independently, so all of the proceeds go towards our development programmes.

If you would like to make a donation via BACS, please email, or call Jane Lowery, General Manager on 01723 384500.
