德比博物館達到100萬英鎊的目標,以幫助確保未來的發展

德比博物館已經達到了100萬英鎊的籌款目標,國家彩票遺產基金將把該目標翻倍至200萬英鎊。

該慈善信託基金於2017年開始籌款,因為彩票計劃提出每捐贈1英鎊就翻一番,最高可達100萬英鎊。

該信託基金表示,這將有助於確保其博物館的未來,為幾代人服務。

德比博物館成立於1879年,於2012年成立為慈善機構,經營德比博物館和藝術館、皮克福德之家以及2021年5月開放的德比絲綢廠的新製造博物館。

它在2017年成為全英國15個獲得國家彩票遺產基金的遺產捐贈資助的遺產組織之一。

該信託基金說,這筆捐贈將有助於確保其博物館的未來--如製造博物館--為後代服務。

該信託基金說,這200萬英鎊將被永久投資,所獲資金將提供長期的年度收入。

德比博物館的執行董事托尼-巴特勒說。"在經歷了十年的緊縮之後,地區性的民間博物館有一種深刻的緊迫感,需要籌集更多自己的收入,並確保可靠和穩定的收入。"

他說。"我們要感謝全英國的國家彩票玩家對捐贈的貢獻,以及我們慷慨的遊客、支持者、朋友和志願者,他們使這個令人難以置信的成就成為可能。

"在生活成本危機和城市大流行後的復甦背景下,支持像德比博物館這樣的免費文化組織也許比以往任何時候都更重要。"


Derby Museums has reached a £1m fundraising target which will be doubled to £2m by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The charitable trust started fundraising in 2017 after the lottery scheme offered to double every £1 donated, up to a maximum of £1m.

The trust said it would help secure the future of its museums for generations.

Derby Museums, which was established in 1879 and formed as a charity in 2012, operates Derby Museum and Art Gallery, Pickford's House and the new Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill, which opened in May 2021.

It became one of 15 heritage organisations across the UK to be awarded a Heritage Endowment Grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund in 2017.

The trust said the endowment would help secure the future of its museums - like the Museum of Making - for generations to come

The trust said the £2m would be invested in perpetuity, with the money made providing a long-term, annual income.

Tony Butler, executive director of Derby Museums, said: "After a decade of austerity, there has been a profound urgency for regional civic museums to raise more of their own income and to ensure reliable and steady revenues."

He said: "We'd like to thank National Lottery players across the UK for their part in contributing to the endowment, as well as our generous visitors, supporters, friends and volunteers who have made this incredible achievement possible.

"Against the backdrop of the cost-of-living crisis and the city's post-pandemic recovery, supporting free-to-enter cultural organisations like Derby Museums is perhaps more important than ever."
