Spotlight on the Chamber Charity | Friends of Manx National Heritage | January 2024

30 January 2024

Now more than ever local charities need support from the business community to ensure the fantastic work they undertake continues and develops.

Charitable work is an excellent way to enhance your businesses CSR, in addition to giving you and your team the “feel good factor”

Every month Chamber Voice will be highlighting the propositions and projects of our individual Charity members and educating you on how and why your business might choose to become a supporter. This month we hear from the team at The Friends of Manx National Heritage.


Tell us about your charity and what your aims are?

The Friends of Manx National Heritage (FMNH) are a registered charity (No. 1027) committed to supporting the work of Manx National Heritage (MNH).  By becoming a member of FMNH you can play an important role on conserving the cultural heritage and natural environment of the Isle of Man for future generations to enjoy. Every membership helps to directly preserve our unique cultural heritage through funding for projects, acquisitions and conservation, so that everyone can enjoy all aspects of our Island’s heritage. We provide funds for the purchase of important works of art and artefacts for the National collection, land and buildings of national interest for the nation and we provide volunteers to assist MNH staff for projects, events and regular gardening at their heritage sites.


In addition to the above how can the business community support your charity?

Our Corporate Membership Scheme offers companies the opportunity to make a positive commitment to the Island’s unique heritage and culture. Depending on which category of membership you choose, your company will also be entitled to a range of benefits and your employees will benefit too. Benefits include free admission to all the Manx National Heritage attractions and over 3000 acres of National Trust Land and 10% discount in all Manx National Heritage Shops on a unique range of merchandise. We run an exciting and varied members-only programme of events throughout the year, including behind the scenes tours and curator led visits and talks. Members also get free or reduced admission to some 650 properties throughout Britain operated by either the National Trust, English Heritage, Scottish National Trust, Historic Scotland or Cadw and properties controlled by the Trusts of Australia, New Zealand, The Cayman Island, Bermuda and Malta.
