Make a Donation

The Stained Glass Museum is an independent Charitable Trust that exists to collect, exhibit, and interpret stained glass for the enjoyment of all. Please consider supporting us by making a donation.

Please Gift Aid your donation

If you are a UK taxpayer the Museum can claim Gift aid on your donation which means that the museum receives an extra 25%. Please complete and sign a gift aid declaration form and return to us.


Legacy Giving

Gifts and bequests over the past four decades have enabled The Stained Glass Museum to develop a significant collection of stained glass from the medieval period to the present day, unrivalled in the UK. Leaving a bequest can ensure your appreciation of stained glass is passed on to future generations through preservation of the collection, enhanced display and interpretation, and our educational outreach. If you are interested in becoming a benefactor, please read our Legacy Giving leaflet or contact the Curator on 01353 660347.



Volunteers are an integral part of the Museum team. They work alongside our staff, but in different roles, and contribute to the development and day-to-day operations of the Museum. For information on current volunteering opportunities, please see our Volunteering page or contact the Museum on 01353 660347.
