Kelmscott and Morris: Past, Present and Future
Kelmscott Manor Campaign
About the project
We have now raised more than £470,000 towards our £1.5 million target for the Kelmscott project (preserving the Manor and its legacy). As we prepare to submit our Stage 2 application for £4.4 million to the Heritage Lottery Fund, we need your help to secure the remaining ‘match funding’ required. Any help you give at this crucial stage could make all the difference.
How you can help
Become a Companion or Benefactor: For gifts of £500 you will become a Kelmscott Manor Companion, with your donation recorded in a special commemorative book. For gifts of £5,000 or £15,000 and over, your name will be recorded on a stone plaque as a Kelmscott Manor Benefactor, or Principal Benefactor.
Donate any amount: Any donation large or small is incredibly appreciated, and could make all the difference to the Kelmscott Campaign. Please select 'Kelmscott Manor' when making your donation.
Recurring gifts: You can also become a Kelmscott Manor Companion or Benefactor by setting up a regular gift. These options start from just £10 per month, and will help secure the long-term future of the project.
- Kelmscott Manor Companion (£500). Gifts will be recorded in perpetuity in a special ‘Commemorative Companion’ book.
- Kelmscott Manor Benefactor (£5,000). Gifts will be recorded on a special stone plaque as a ‘Kelmscott Manor Benefactor’.
- Kelmscott Manor Principal; Benefactor (£15,000). Gifts will be recorded on a separate stone plaque as a ‘Kelmscott Manor Principal Benefactor’.
We will contact you to tell you more about the aims of the project and discuss the contribution your gift will make. All Benefactors will be recorded in perpetuity, including anonymous donations.
