Fundraising Update

It’s been a busy few months for the Insurance Museum with our Director Howard Benge and Chairman Reg Brown making the trip to Guernsey for the Airmic (the Association of Insurance & Risk Managers in Industry and Commerce) and GIIA (Guernsey Insurance Industry Association) conference. We are hugely grateful to GIIA and their members for facilitating our opportunity to contribute to the programme with a talk on insurance history and to spread the word about the charity more widely. GIIA is one of a number of partners who have pledged multi-year support to the museum.

Supporting the Insurance Museum Public Programmes

The Insurance Museum can deliver on public engagement with support from the wider insurance community. We have a range of projects that need funding behind them to enable us to deliver on our strategy for education, collections and public engagement.

They include:

  • Education resources – these will consist of material for teachers to use in the classroom, to teach subjects where insurance connects to core subjects, such as mathematics, geography and history.
  • Education programme – the IM will develop a range of workshops for schools that will include insurance as a main case study. They will improve upon students’ mathematical skills and personal finance understanding.
  • CPD Podcasts – aimed at early career professionals, the CPD podcasts will look at historical subjects, and events and relate them to insurance practices today.
  • Online galleries – to add to our virtual museum we will bring the histories of marine insurance and life assurance to life with online exhibitions.
  • Oral histories – we want to capture the histories and stories of people who worked in insurance from the 1960s to 2010s. These personal histories will be kept for prosperity and used in exhibitions, education programmes and events.

To make them happen, we need sponsorship. If your organisation would like to support the Museum please get in contact here: Contact – Insurance Museum  In return, IM will recognise support across all our channels and can offer tours and talks to your staff and at your events.
