As Sunderland's only maritime history organisation, our objective is to promote Sunderland's extensive maritime heritage. Contributing to SMH allows you to make a real contribution to this. Contributions are vital in keeping us open to work with our community. Without contributions we would not be able to offer local volunteers, or people returning to the workplace, opportunities to contribute their time in a constructive way. Another way we use your contributions is to work with schoolchildren and college students, so future generations can sustain our maritime heritage.
All monies received go towards helping us pay our running costs such as electric, insurance, telephone, printed materials, maintaining machines and buying materials. Our present running costs are approximately £10,000 per year. As we are all volunteers at SMH, there are no paid employees.
Thank you for your consideration.
