The Elgar Birthplace Appeal

The Trustees of The Elgar Foundation established The Elgar Birthplace Appeal in November 2011 with the goal of creating a permanent endowment fund to give the Elgar Birthplace Museum a secure financial future.

The objective of the appeal is to generate a long term source of income which can help to support the operating costs of The Elgar Birthplace Museum and allow the opportunity to continue to offer a wonderful experience for our visitors, researchers and scholars. We receive no financial assistance from the Government, Arts Organisations or local councils for our work and are dependent of donations, legacies and the enthusiasm and generosity of our visitors.

We aim to raise £500,000 for The Elgar Birthplace Appeal in order to secure the future of Elgar's childhood home.
