The St Barbe Endowment:
Building a foundation for the future

The St Barbe Endowment is a fund set up to provide revenue for the Museum and Art Gallery in perpetuity.
We are delighted to have been selected by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a coveted Heritage Endowment Grant.
This means that every gift (plus Gift Aid) made to the St Barbe Endowment before the end of March 2021 is matched pound for pound up to an overall total of £250,000.

As an independent charity, St Barbe takes its financial sustainability very seriously. We raise most of the funding we need through admissions, retail, catering and other income-generating activities.  We also rely on the generous support of the local community. Their donations enable us to present exhibitions, education and events for everyone living in and visiting Lymington and the New Forest Coast.
Thank you for considering making a donation. Every pound you give will make St Barbe even more special to more people.

You can choose to make a single or regular donation. A regular gift provides a steady income stream and allows St Barbe to plan for the future.
