Join and support

Thank you to the hundreds of donors who contributed to the Windermere Jetty capital appeal. With your support, Lakeland Arts has been hugely successful, raising over £16 million to take the Windermere Jetty project to near completion.

There are many ways you can continue to support us. Whatever the size of your donation, you will help local communities and create new experiences for visitors to Windermere as part one of the most significant cultural projects in the North-West. Larger donations can support the conservation of a boat or our innovative learning programme that engages with local communities and schools.


The future of the museum and its unique collection depends not only on the success of the new museum, but also on the creation of a lasting source of financial support. With the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have been able to build an endowment fund that will provide an annual income for the museum, helping support ongoing conservation, learning activities and our operation. Donating to this fund will provide support for the museum and collection for years to come.

If you are considering donating, our dedicated Head of Development would be happy to discuss your plans, in confidence. Please speak to Caroline Gilbert, Head of Development, on 01539 888048 or email her.

Thank you. Your support makes all this possible.
