Support us

Please help to secure the legacy of Florence, her work and the future of the Museum.

The Florence Nightingale Museum is an independent museum and registered charity. We receive no government funding and therefore rely on the generosity and goodwill of those who support us.

Support can range from one-off donations or volunteering your time here at the Museum. All types of support are valued and help us realise a wide variety of projects and activities.

Every donation, no matter what the size, is welcome and will help us continue our purpose as a museum to care for a historically significant collection and to inspire the next generation of healthcare workers.

Wall of Honour

Say thank you to someone who has inspired you

We all need inspiration to help us through life, and Florence Nightingale inspired thousands of women and men to follow in her footsteps. We are inviting nominations for the museum’s Wall of Honour where you can honour someone who has inspired you or mark your own personal support for the museum.

The Wall of Honour is located in a museum’s reception area and welcomes all visitors to the museum. By supporting this project, you may choose a person to remember and ensure their name is featured on the Wall. You can remember anyone who has played an important role in your life, including relatives, friends, a nurse or carer, a teacher or professor, someone who has influenced your career or someone you admire. You can recognise the support of someone who is working, retired or who has passed away. Alternatively, you can celebrate your own contribution to the museum.

Your charitable donation will help us care for the museum’s collection and ensure that future generations have the chance to learn about Florence Nightingale and her achievements.

You will be recognised as a Patron and invited with your family to a special event to unveil your addition to the Wall of Honour. The invitation will be also be extended to the person you have remembered, if applicable.

Book of Honour

Your page in the Book of Honour

Do you know a nurse who would like to be remembered on a page in the Florence Nightingale’s Book of Honour? Or would you like to commemorate your own nursing career?

For a payment of £60, we will place your words, photos and images in the Book to be kept in the museum forever, as a record of the incredible stories of nursing.

Each page is 30cm x 24cm (landscape).

Your donation will help us to care for the museum collection and continue in our work in celebrating nursing, past and present.

A Lasting Impact

One of the most effective and personal ways to make a lasting impact on the Florence Nightingale Museum’s work is to remember our charity in your will.

Legacies can be designated to a particular aspect of our work, such as education or growing our endowment, or they can be left to the discretion of the Museum.

Your gift will help ensure the enjoyment of our museum for generations to come.
