The Friends of the Marx Memorial Library are a core group of our valued supporters.

Our Friends commit to donating a monthly sum to the Library. Thanks to this income stream, the MML can continue its vital work:

  • Acquiring new publications, keeping our world class research resource up to date
  • Making books, archives and artefacts available through a dynamic education programme, on-line and off site
  • Digitising our archives to facilitate preservation and improve access
  • Creating learning resources and publications to inform new generations about our history
  • Engaging wide audiences by putting on exhibitions, displays and hosting guided tours
  • Preserving and conserving our unique collections for posterity

Friends will also receive a Friends Pack (below) be invited to special 'Friends' events – including exhibition previews and collection launches - at the MML each year to show our appreciation.


Most recently we held an event welcoming two of the Miami Five at a special ceremony and plaque unveiling at the MML. Please see our video here 


What your donation will mean to us

Friends can donate as little as £5 or as much as £50 per month. Here is a guide to what your donation might cover:

Total Amount
Gift Aid
I am a UK taxpayer and I would like the Marx Memorial Library to treat this donation and any donations I make in the future and have made in the past 4 years as Gift Aid donations, until I notify you otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand that Marx Memorial Library will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Marx Memorial Library from the tax I pay for the current tax year. Please let us know if your tax circumstances or name and address details change so we can amend our records.
