How you can help us

Our many generous donors make it possible for NMCT to support conservation projects to the tune of c£150,000 a year, but our ability to continue funding at this level is dependent on our continued success in raising funds.

We would very much like to hear from you if you would like to support our work either by making a donation or by working collaboratively with us.


Support our work by making a donation - you can send a cheque to PO Box 4291, Reading, RG8 9JA or contact us for our bank details to make a BACS transfer.  Please consider Gift Aiding your donation - this adds 25% to its value for NMCT but at no extra cost to you.  The Gift Aid form can be downloaded below.



You may also like to consider remembering the NMCT in your will by leaving a legacy. Since April 2012 any estate that leaves at least 10% to a charitable cause is able to take advantage of a reduction in inheritance tax from 40% down to 36%.

If you want to discuss a donation or legacy please do contact Mrs Nell Hoare, the NMCT Secretary.


NMCT works in partnership with funders and strategic organisations, including: The Pilgrim Trust, the Museums Archives and Libraries department in Wales and the Scottish Council for Archives as well, of course, as The National Archives. 

These partnerships help further the work of all of the organisations involved and, crucially, help ensure that more support and resources are devoted to the conservation and care of manuscripts.

We are keen to develop new partnerships, so if you would like to discuss an idea please contact Nell Hoare.
