Ways to give to the museum
The Highland Heritage Appeal was started to raise funds for our successful Redevelopment Project. The Redevelopment Project completed at the end of March 2013 but the Museum must continue to raise funds for small projects, community initiatives and day to day running costs. Money raised through our fundraising initiatives will also ensure the financial sustainability of the Museum as well as providing vital funding to carry out conservation on our precious artefacts. There are many ways you can financially support the Museum ranging from a one off donation to naming a room in the Museum.
There are a variety of fascinating and poignant artefacts available for adoption. For a one off donation of £250 we will provide you with a full list of all of the artefacts available for adoption or, if you would prefer, a list of available artefacts pertaining to a specific period or Regiment. You can adopt an artefact of your choosing.
Each display case tells a different story and provides a unique insight into Regimental life from just after the Battle of Culloden up until the present day. For a minimum donation of £500 you can name a case with a dedication of your choosing. The plaque with your chosen dedication will be fixed on the display case. The cases are being snapped up quickly so don’t delay and get in touch to secure your display case.
