About Us - Mō Mātou
The Whanganui Regional Museum Trust is an independent legal entity that owns the collection and governs the development of the Museum on behalf of the community. The Museum has a close relationship with the Wanganui District Council which provides a significant percentage of the Museum’s funding requirements.
Independent charitable trust status provides leverage for adding value to the ratepayer contribution.
Other funding sources:
- Ministry of Education contract
- Donations, admissions, facilities hire, shop sales and other services
- Fundraising for projects, operations and capital renewals through grants, sponsorship, donations and bequests
