Support the Archive

The Poetry Archive exists thanks to the involvement, support, enthusiasm and generosity of public bodies, charitable trusts and private individuals. We are grateful to each and every one of them. Please visit our Benefactors page to see who they are.

Each new recording costs the Archive £2,120 to make. Adding a historic recording costs us £1,300. If you would like to support us, please consider making a donation towards this ongoing programme so that recordings can continually be added to the Archive.

To make a donation, please follow the links below to fill in a postal donation form or to make an online donation by PayPal.

Our donation form includes a Gift Aid declaration: completing it will allow the Archive to reclaim tax on your donation.

If you are considering making a substantial donation and would like more information from us before you do so, please contact Richard Carrington:

Your donation will be acknowledged in the Benefactors section of the site.
