Become a Supporter

In the last fifty years World Monuments Fund has supported 603 important historic sites in over 100 counties around the world. We invite you to join us, to become part of our international community as we celebrate this milestone, and look to new initiatives in the future.

Since 1995 WMF Britain has helped restore and conserve many vulnerable buildings, created new educational resources, advocacy and visitor facilities. Our mission is to sustain a beautiful and useful historic environment for future generations to enjoy.

As a UK registered charity we receive no government funding: 0ur continued success is down to people like you, who understand the value of our historic environment. People who want to stand up for those important yet sometimes forgotten buildings that require a helping hand.

Join us and invest in the future of our historical past.

WMF Britain prides itself on its important project work. Over the years we have established impactful relationships with our project partners to ensure that our assistance transforms vulnerable historic buildings into sustainable assets used by the local community and opened up to a wider public audience to enjoy.

Your support directly underpins every aspect of our work. From onsite conservation to advocacy, education, training and outreach work, every pound we receive contributes to protecting our built heritage for future generations.

Leave a gift in your Will

We would be delighted if you decide to include World Monuments Fund Britain in your Will. If you have already done so or are thinking about it and would like more information please let us know. We can then discuss it with you, offer advice or ensure that you are acknowledged in a way which is most appropriate to your interests.

WMF Britain was founded as a result of a major legacy from one of American’s most enlightened benefactors, Paul Mellon (1907-1999). He saw the great benefits of preserving the architectural heritage of Great Britain and the role of WMF Britain in using its skills to make it happen. Since then we have accomplished a great deal, but there is still much to do.

Legacies offer the opportunity to make a lasting contribution with no immediate financial outlay. As they are exempt from inheritance tax they can also be a tax effective way to give.
