Raise funds with the help of a free, family day pass to Thinktank

 

              charity voucher 

Our free entry vouchers are in high demand as competition prizes, raffle and charity auction items, or initiative incentives. We would be delighted to help you raise funds yourself... However due to Thinktank's popularity we receive a huge number of requests each week, and simply can't afford to help them all. We have had to set some rules! 

 
Our Donation

Thinktank is part of Birmingham Museums Trust, and as a registered charity is prevented under the Charities Act, from making financial donations that benefit other charities. 

We are however able to donate our services and our standard donation is a one day pass allowing a family of four to visit Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum and the Science Garden (Entrance to any charging activities and some major touring exhibitions are not included in this offer).

As many work tirelessly on behalf of their chosen charity, we receive a number of applications each year and we are unable to support all of the requests we receive. We prefer to support local organisations, and therefore prioritise organisations whose work directly benefits our local community and who often struggle to find alternative funding. 

All money collected from a donation must be for direct benefit of your own organisation.

Your Event

Thinktank aims to both widen people’s knowledge of science and to improve community access to science through education. We try to support events that offer improvements to the education, or inclusion of the wider community, groups and projects.

Your fund raising event should be open too, and inclusive of the wider community, open days, sports days, community events, fairs and community based initiatives, etc. 

Private, invitation only or ticketed events will generally not be supported, as these may not be attainable by everyone, and therefore exclude some members of the local community. 

We are not able to support applications from groups collecting for third party charities and appeals, individuals seeking sponsorship, overseas aid or animal welfare groups.

Schools / Educational Groups

Due to a high and regular demand for donations from schools, nurseries and play groups we have agreed a policy of mutual support. Only groups that have visited Thinktank, within the twelve months prior to their application, or those who have a booking for a future visit, will be put forward for consideration.
