Make a Finanical Donation

Donate to the future of the National Heritage Centre today

The National Heritage Centre is a jewel of history, culture, heritage, sport and art with a long Royal connection in the centre of the headquarters of horse racing. Donating will help to fund a variety of different projects such as new acquisitions, exhibitions, life-long learning and community events which will enhance what is already available to the public.

£1 million Heritage Lottery Fund Match Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded £1 million in match funding through its Catalyst programme to support the creation of a permanent fund. This is a time-limited challenge fund, giving us until May 2017 to raise £1 million in order to make the most of the HLF's generosity. The Endowment Campaign offers a number of opportunities for donors to associate their names, or the names of their families, with particular aspects of the redevelopment programme – examples are available on request.

For every £1 you give, the HLF will match it – effectively doubling its value.

  • You can donate via our Just Giving Page 
  • You can donate by cheque - please make them out to The National Horseracing Museum Endowment Fund
  • Please contact Janet if you would like to make a Bank Transfer
Donations of £500 or above will be recorded in the Palace House Match Book along with a short message of your choosing. The Book will be leather-bound, resembling the original Newmarket Match Book (pictured above), and will be displayed prominently in the new National Heritage Centre. Entries handwritten in elegant calligraphy will celebrate your generosity in an appropriately historic style. Unless specifically requested to be anonymous, all donations of £1,000 or above will also be acknowledged on a prominently displayed Donor Board at the entrance to the new National Heritage Centre.
