You may not realise it but we’re a registered charity.Your visit is greatly valued and supports our work as an independent educational and conservation charity, but there are lots of other ways you can help us. For almost 30 years, our visitors have been able to experience and learn about our Ice Age ancestors and the unique site they visited.
We do receive a small (but essential) amount of public funding but this is rapidly decreasing; securing alternative sources of income is essential to ensure that we maintain our services. This means that we have to raise funds through tour and exhibition fees, parking, our shop and cafe and generous donations from our visitors and supporters.
By supporting us on Patreon you have the option to receive access to online content, including Q&A sessions with our team and on-demand recordings of our online talks series.
There are three levels of membership starting at just £3 per month, each with a different range of benefits.
Please remember we can claim Gift Aid, because we are a charity. We can claim back 25p per £1 donated to us – this can be claimed back from tours, exhibition entry, and on any donations we gratefully receive. We just need to take a few details such as name, postcode and house number, and get a signature from you. So, if you’re a UK taxpayer, don’t forget to say you wish to Gift Aid!
Donating £5 will buy the specialist packaging materials to help us preserve our world renowned collections for future generations.
Donating £10 will buy a new billhook, which help our outdoor team when coppicing and laying hedges to ensure the correct growth pattern.
Donating £20 will buy the Educational resources we need to regularly replenish when working with young people.
Donating £100 will enable our Ranger to buy bedding plants to go around the Visitors centre and new dipping pond, which will encourage wildlife and add to the site’s incredible aesthetics.
For larger donations, £500 would enhance the outdoor classroom by enabling the creation of an immersive Ice Age campsite.
Creswell Crags is a beautiful and peaceful place, that we know many people have incredibly fond memories of, and holds a special place in people’s hearts.
However we are a small, independent charity, and rely on help and support.
It’s a big decision, but after you’ve provided for your family and friends you might like to also remember us with a gift in your Will. Your donation will be helping to make sure that future generations can experience the site and discover our Ice Age ancestors.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you of course, however you will need the following information to be included in your Will:
