Donations and Gift Aid
The KOSB Association and Museum would like to thank all donors, potential donors and supporters, for the help and support they provide in maintaining the fabric of our Regiment.
Supporting the KOSB Regimental Museum through donations and sponsorship enables us to preserve and retell the stories of over 300 years of Borderers History and preserving one of the finest collections in the country. Support from individuals, companies, grant-making trusts and other organisations ensures that we are able to create and curate exhibitions as well as refurbish and refresh our existing displays; preserve the items in the collection and make them available for studying and learning; and create and deliver new strands within our learning programme and purchase artefacts linked with them.
There are many aspects of our work which are available for sponsorship: Schools Education projects, Family and Community work, temporary exhibitions, acquisitions of new artefacts, and preservation work. Sponsorship of each of these areas comes with their own list of features and benefits, many of which can be tailored to suit your particular corporate needs. Costs start from £5,000 and if you are interested in sponsoring any aspect of the Regimental Museum, please contact the Association Secretary who will arrange a meeting to discuss specific projects with you.
As an independent registered charity, The KOSB Museum is reliant on charitable income. Signing up to one of our regular giving schemes enables the Museum to have confidence in a certain level of income and therefore plan for the future, and enables donors to become more closely involved with our activities and projects.
A gift in your Will
Leaving a gift to The KOSB Museum in your Will is one of the most thoughtful ways you can support our charitable activities. Many people are unable to offer a level financial support to causes close to their hearts in their lifetime but a gift in their Will enables them to make a real difference. The amount doesn’t have to be large to have an impact, but if we are to preserve the memory of our Regimental Family in perpetuity than we need to gatherer funds to secure the quality of the Museum and maintain the home of the KOSB.
