Supporting us

The Museum of Music History provides facilities to conserve, store and offer access to its collections. Alongside our dedicated team of volunteers we depend on private donations as well as awards from trusts and foundations in order to pay for professional staffing and conservation; we receive no public subsidy.

We are indebted to the Helen Roll Charity and the Kathleen Hannay Memorial Charity for their continued support, as well as countless Anonymous donors.

If you are able to support us, please press the ‘Donate’ button above.  If you are able to Gift Aid your donation we will receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give.

Alternatively you might consider giving via the Oliver Davies Memorial Fund.  This Fund, which also encourages Gift Aid, was established in 2020 to support the cataloguing and curation of the substantial personal collection bequeathed to the Museum by Oliver Davies, with any surplus going towards cataloguing and maintaining the rest of the MOMH collection.  To make a donation to the Oliver Davies Memorial Fund, or for any other enquiries, please click here to email our Treasurer (treasurer@momh.org.uk).
