The Board of Trustees support museum staff to fundraise for the Service against an annual fundraising strategy that is agreed with the Norfolk Joint Museums Committee. The Foundation carries out its objectives by raising funds from grant giving bodies, individual donors, and corporate sponsors to support a wide variety of museum activities including exhibitions and displays, capital improvements, conservation, learning and outreach. By supporting activities like these the NMDF supports the Museum Service to achieve the key goals set out in its strategic plan.
