We Need Your Support
Much has been achieved at Portland Works since 2013. As well as ongoing maintenance, more work-space and a large events room have been created, underpinning the viability of the whole enterprise. But there is still more to do, and we need your help to do it.
While the owner of the building (Portland Works Little Sheffield Ltd) is responsible for management and day-to-day maintenance, Friends of Portland Works raises funds for the many projects that are also needed to ensure its future. Rental income is not enough to cover all these costs.
We have been generously supported by several charities over the last four years, but the donations we receive from individuals and companies are extremely important in two ways: they directly fund projects at the works, and they also make our applications to these organisations credible and successful. By April 2019 we have funded projects at Portland Works worth over £25,000.
Please help us to continue giving this support. £20 would make you a ‘Friend of Portland Works’, and we would keep you in touch with developments and activities as this wonderful project advances. If you are a private individual paying income tax, we can increase your donation by 25 per cent through Gift Aid. The process is very straightforward and you can donate securely via the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) website by simply clicking the button below.
Where Your Money Goes
We are extremely grateful for the support of the Sheffield Rotary Clubs, JG Graves Trust, Freshgate Foundation, Sheffield Town Trust, Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust, Foyle Foundation and Aslackby Trust.
Here are some of the projects funded by them and our individual supporters:
