You can donate to support our museum and archive work 

Your financial donations, large and small really matter.  They help us be more than just a place in Rochdale to visit. We want to engage people with the story of co-operation to help them use co-op values today in providing solutions in our modern communities. Our museum building currently hosts the technology to provide local residents with free high speed broadband as part of local partnership working.


Our heritage assets and documentary collections are used to explain the ways in which co-op values can help make society a better place. We are free to researchers, we offer cheap and free activities for local people and the sessions we put on are all about finding ways to reduce waste and impact on the climate and be a place where young, displaced and isolated people are welcomed. 

What will we do with your donations?

We will conserve and share collections and use them to raise awareness of the benefits of co-operative culture for a new audience of co-operators.

We use some of our donations to support offering events and activities locally at an affordable price.

You can use the donation function here to pay for services we offer -  like scanned photographs or booking a group talk. Please let us know about this before making your donation - so we can make sure we can complete the request.

You can also help us with other projects through corporate donations, bequests and by volunteering your time.
