How your support can help us

The Scarborough Museums Trust is a charity (no: 1106238) whose vision is to develop the Rotunda Museum and Scarborough Art Gallery as centres of excellence where great art and great science are on show for our community to enjoy and learn about together.

The support that we receive from a wide range of donations and grants plays a vital role in enabling the Trust 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 Scarborough Collections for future generations. As a Charitable Incorporated Organisation the Trust is able to raise money independently, so all of the proceeds go towards our development programmes.

To talk to a member of our Collections Team about donating an object, specimen or artwork to the collection, please telephone 01723 384510.

Thank You
