The Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust is registered with the Charity Commission as a charity (Registered Charity No 1156976). Its charitable objectives are the advancement of education of the public by the promotion, assistance, and improvement of the Portsmouth D-Day Museum and its related activities and of historic sites and other areas of cultural interest relating to the D-Day story.
The Trust currently has three Trustees, Paula Riches, Roger Ching and Lorie Coffey. The Patron of the Trust is Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, son of Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery (the Allied Land Forces Commander for D-Day). The Trust’s first aim is to help secure the funding for the re-development of the D-Day Museum.
As a registered charity, the Trust can receive donations to the project made under Gift Aid. These add £2.50 to every £10 given by donors paying UK income tax at the basic rate (currently 20%) and higher-rate taxpayers can also claim a personal tax rebate.
