The task of preserving and interpreting our heritage for present and future generations inevitably comes at a cost. Like most museums and collections, we were founded on philanthropy. Today, as a registered charity, The Silk Heritage Trust which manages Macclesfield Museums, still relies upon the generous support of donors, trusts, foundations and companies to enable us to continue our core work and to undertake improvements to our exhibition spaces, education programmes and heritage conservation.
We need your support to realise our vision; to maintain an innovative and exciting museum and heritage offer for Macclesfield and to provide inspiring experiences for visitors through our unique collections and remarkable heritage buildings.
We want to celebrate and share the extraordinary story of Macclesfield; a story of creativity, industry and enterprise, and with your help we can achieve this ambition.
There are opportunities to support us on a range of levels, and in return we look forward to recognising your support in our Museums, building a mutually beneficial partnership with you and involving you in our work.
