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 buildings (Portland Works Little Sheffield Ltd.) is responsible for its management, Friends of Portland Works aims to raise funds for the major renovation projects that are also needed to ensure its future. Rental income is not enough to cover all these costs.
The projects we have funded are essential to ensure structural stability and public safety. We have been supported by the JG Graves Trust, the Freshgate Foundation, the Sheffield Town Trust, the Foyle Foundation and the Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust. The donations we receive from individuals and companies make our applications to other charities credible and also enable us to add our own contributions on top.
Our focus for 2019 is to raise funds to create more workshops that will provide space for more tenants. Please help us to meet this target by making a donation. £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 via our MyDonate page. Note that the fee for giving via MyDonate is just 15p with a debit card but 1.3 per cent with a credit card.
