MANCHESTER DISTRICT MUSIC ARCHIVE TRUST

Manchester District Music Archive is a user-led online community archive established to celebrate Greater Manchester music and its social history.

We are a registered charity. The day-to- day running of our online archive is done voluntarily. We also deliver special community engagement programmes and educational events, which are funded by grant-giving bodies, fundraising events and donations from members of the public.

Donations made to MDMarchive help to cover our online and programme running costs. These include: website hosting, development and maintenance and costs for our special educational events, including room hire, equipment hire and project management. Donations allow us build extra features onto our website and improve the user experience for our members. Please note, features such as our regular E-newsletters, enquiry handling and social media management are done by volunteers.

We endeavour to be a transparent organisation and our accounts can be viewed at any time on the Charity Commission website here.

Every donation, large or small, can help us achieve the aims and objectives outlined below:
