Trusts & Foundations

We are  a registered educational charity and an independent, not-for-profit organisation: we must raise 100% of our funding needs through earned income, such as admission fees and secondary spend.  

While these income streams maintain our day-to-day running,  BCLM must seek support from trusts and foundations to undertake new exciting projects such as heritage restorations, learning programmes and  activities to reach new audiences.

Take a look at some of our current and past projects   here.
