Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

Whether you have a love of archaeology or for the towns of Malton and Norton, leaving a legacy in your Will is the perfect way to show your lasting support for Malton Museum.

We are an independent museum and a Registered Charity (no. 1176471) which means we receive no government funding. We have to rely heavily on donations, not only to achieve our objectives through our collections exhibitions and education programme, but also to safeguard the Museum for future generations.

A gift of any amount would make a crucial contribution to the continued success of the Museum. It can help us to fund educational programmes, conservation, exhibitions, lectures and new acquisitions to enhance our collection and preserve our history.

Our promise

We promise to spend your special gift wisely and effectively.

We know that your decision to include Malton Museum in your Will is a very private one. If you would like to discuss your intentions and wishes with us, we would be delighted to do so; please contact us using the details at the bottom of this page. Be assured that any information you provide is not legally binding and will be treated in strictest confidence.
