The Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust is registered with the Charity Commission as a charity (Registered Charity No 1156976). The Trust's charitable objectives are the advancement of the education of the public by the promotion, assistance, and improvement of the D-Day Museum, Portsmouth, and its related activities and of historic sites and other areas of cultural interest relating to the D-Day story. The Trust’s first aim is to help secure the outstanding match funding required for the Museum's £4.8 million re-development project, Transforming the D-Day Museum. This is a minimum of £200,000. Further projects are planned in the run-up to the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019 and beyond, as the museum becomes the national hub for uncovering and sharing D-Day heritage across the country. 

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.
