The Annual Fund

The Charleston Annual Fund The Annual Fund supports this work to ensure that the House at Charleston and its Collection remain the same for many years to come and for future generations to enjoy. The House and the Collection are at the centre of everything that the Charleston Trust does. Conservation, preservation and maintenance of them, together with the core costs of running Charleston as an independent charity, are some of the most difficult areas for which to fundraise. The Charleston Trust is an independent charity and receives no public funding for its day-to-day running costs. The House, its Collection and Garden continue to be open to the public because of the generous donations received by its visitors and supporters. We are extremely grateful for your support and hope that you can contribute towards our annual target of £6,000.  We hope you will support our efforts to build on Charleston’s success. Please give whatever you feel able to the Charleston Annual Fund and help support the house museum and its collection for everyone. If you would like to make a more substantial gift to the Annual Fund or would like to discuss how else you can support the Charleston Trust, such as joining its Omega Group or becoming a volunteer, please contact Susie Tempest on 01323 815 161 or email her at s.tempest@charleston.org.uk DONATE HERE putting the house to bed, Garden room.
