From the Director
As a privately-funded non-government institution, the Museum relies
on the generosity of its members, friends and corporate sponsors
to support the full range of our functions and work. Your contribution
will help us to meet the substantial costs of our daily operations
and provides critical support for new exhibitions, education, acquisitions,
conservation, scholarship and publications, archaeology and preservation
schemes, lasting endowments and capital projects.
Whether a donation to the Museum’s annual appeal fund, exhibition
sponsorship, capital project backing, or an endowed gift, there
are many ways to financially support the Museum.
Supporters can donate directly to the Museum in Bermuda, or via
the overseas funds of the Friends of the Bermuda Maritime Museum,
Inc. (USA), or the Bermuda Maritime Museum Trust (UK).
To inquire about giving to the Museum, please contact me on 1-441-234-1333
ext.222, or preferably by email at email@example.com.
Please join us and help ensure all the good work of the Museum continues.
Thank you very much for your kind consideration and support.
