How does my donation contribute?

We became a registered charity (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) in April 2021 with registered charity number: 1194239. All donations, along with any other income that we receive from grants or payments, go towards our charitable aims: to make the science centre organisation and run its activities for the public, and create the science centre building and everything in it. This includes things like (reasonable) staff salaries, costs for creating exhibits and running events in schools or in public, and fees for necessary professional services (like accountants or consultants, where we can’t do these activities ourselves).

We’re dedicated to making the Exeter Science Centre for public benefit. We publish the details of our income and expenditure in full in our Annual Report (small donations from individuals are of course anonymous) – if you’d like to see our latest accounts and annual report, you can find this on the Charity Commission website here.
