Corporate Membership

Corporate Membership is £200 per year. In return there are many real attractions to your business:

a) A 20% off room hire at the Museums – in Museums’ time (daytime only).  These would be meetings, workshops or seminars in the Glass Room (max 35 people) and the Bentlif Library (60). 

b) The Corporate logo of your business will be at the foot of every two-monthly electronic newsletter sent to all Friends.

c) An opportunity for your Corporate logo, details and link to your website to appear on this website page.

d) An annual reception in the Museums for all MMF Corporate Members, including your business – it will be a breakfast event or early in the evening. An ideal networking event, and an opportunity to invite your businesses guests.

e) There could be exposure of your business at the fairs MMF attend – perhaps by a board/poster, perhaps inviting you and your staff to be involved, etc.

f) There are opportunities to sponsor MMF events – like Jazz, Carols etc.

g) Each annual Corporate MMF membership qualifies as a charitable donation and can normally be treated as a tax deductible business expense (you would need to take your own advice of course). It is therefore tax efficient for your business.
