Now that you’ve saved the Staffordshire Hoard, what will happen to my money if I make a donation?

Your donation will be used to help care for, conserve, research and display the Staffordshire Hoard.

Acquiring the Staffordshire Hoard was just the beginning and we still need your help. We now need to raise a further £1.7 million to care for, and to unlock the secrets the Staffordshire Hoard holds about the history of Mercia and of Anglo-Saxon England. Plans to create a series of displays including galleries at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent, and a Mercian Trail featuring exhibitions across the region are also underway.
