As a museum within a registered charity, Coventry Transport Museum has to generate income from fundraising and commercial activities including retail and commercial hire to support its activities.
Coventry Transport Museum is very grateful to all its funders and supporters whose generosity enables us to care for our collections and support programmes and services for our visitors.
In particular, we are grateful to Coventry City Council and Arts Council England for their ongoing investment in our museums enabling Coventry Transport Museum to be one of the top visitor attractions in Coventry and Warwickshire.
We are also grateful to the following organisations for their support of Coventry Transport Museum and the Old Grammar School’s redevelopment:
Heritage Lottery Fund
The Garfield Weston Foundation
The Pilgrim Trust
The Brose Group today has 65 locations in 24 countries. "We feel obligated to play an active part in shaping the social environment. We promote sport, cultural, educational and social projects that impart important values to young people in particular and improve their education."
Manufacturer Brose UK, which has been present in Coventry since 1989, sponsor a Learning Officer to work at the museum in a bid to engage with secondary school students. It is part of Brose UK’s approach to developing the next generation of engineers.
Francis Ranford, Cultural & Creative Director, commented:
“We are delighted to have one of the city’s fastest growing manufacturers on board, supporting our learning activities that aim to enthuse and inspire.
“Without their sponsorship we wouldn’t have been able to employ a dedicated Learning Officer and we now believe we can make a real impact in spreading the STEM message, especially to secondary school pupils.”
She concluded: “We are now looking for schools to come forward and share their intention to take part. Our facilities are world class and we now have the resource needed to make the most of them.”
