Supporting firstsite
and it
s work

firstsite is a registered charity and is not for profit.

Through our work, we provide significant employment, training and learning opportunities for local people, and for visitors from across the East of England.

Without the support of regular funding, we could not deliver our full and innovative programme.

Additional funding for specific aspects of our work has been granted by other charitable bodies, and a group of valued individuals also give to firstsite; you can be part of this too.

Ways to get involved

Ways to support firstsite include:


We offer affordable membership packages for individuals, businesses, and educational institutions.

Regular giving

A regular gift of any amount to firstsite would support the sustainability of our income. The simplest way is the complete and return (to firstsite) a standing order form for monthly or annual payments. For a standing order form, please email

Self Assessment giving

If you complete a Self Assessment tax return and are entitled to a tax refund, you can choose to have part or all of the repayment sent directly to firstsite. You can also Gift Aid this donation. firstsite's code for Self Assessment giving is NAU89ZG.


You can remember a charity when making your Will. Your solicitor will be able to talk to you through how to leave a gift to firstsite that will enrich the cultural lives of future generations.


Shares are a great way to support firstsite. You can claim income tax relief on a gift of shares and you will not pay capital gains tax on them.

Don't forget Gift Aid!

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase the value of any donation at no extra cost to you by completing a Gift Aid declaration. This means we can claim an amount (linked to the basic rate of tax) per pound donated by you, back from the government.

If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim the difference between the higher and the basic rate of tax back.
