How you can help
Bletchley Park is proud to be an independent charity and we depend on supporters like you.
Why we need your support now
Over recent years, awareness of the Bletchley Park story has grown, resulting in over 280,000 visitors and over 47,000 participants in the learning programmes in 2019 alone. Now, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted our business strategy and our resilience for the future.
We anticipate an operational deficit of around £1.5m in 2020 and £700k in 2021. To survive, we have restructured the organisation and made redundancies, paused certain activities and slowed our development in certain areas to take us through the next two years.
We have been fortunate to receive funding from the government’s Culture Recovery Fund. Facebook have provided a crucial donation, and several other trusts, foundations, companies, and individuals have provided their support.
We have also seen a rise in Friends of Bletchley Park memberships and are grateful to everyone who has bought tickets and visited. Thank you all for your support.
The challenges of this ongoing crisis continue, and so must our fundraising. As we face the evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic into the New Year and beyond, every ticket or membership bought, and every penny you can give will help us safeguard this remarkable site. Your help will continue the work of Bletchley Park Trust to reflect the outstanding achievements of the Codebreakers – whose work had such an impact on the modern world.
