The Ipswich Society is funded entirely through its membership donations. Where our members have completed a Gift Aid declaration form, we are able to make a claim under the Gift Aid process. As such we are entirely independent and our expenditure is incurred entirely on behalf of the members.
A large proportion of our annual income is spent on the production and distribution of our quarterly Newsletter. In addition, specific events are organised for members to attend and enjoy. These include our Annual General Meeting and the annual Awards Evening. The Society coordinates the annual Heritage Open Weekend on behalf of the town and produces a booklet detailing those premises opening their doors for members of the public to visit.
The Society occasionally makes donations towards projects of interest to Ipswich and the town’s promotion and preservation.
