Tangmere Military Aviation Museum receives no financial support from the government or any external corporate sources. Museum funding comes entirely from ticket sales, ‘Society of Friends’ membership subscriptions, profit on merchandise sold in the Museum shop, occasional grants and bequests and donations made by those who believe in what we are trying to do.

Maintenance and development of the Museum buildings and general infrastructure together with outgoings including expenditure on utilities, insurance, marketing, etc. inevitably come at considerable cost. In order to ensure our future, we would therefore be most grateful for any donation you may care to make, no matter how large or small.
