The SS Great Britain Trust is privileged to look after the SS Great Britain and Brunel’s legacy.

By making a donation you are helping the Trust to share the incredible story of one of Britain’s greatest engineers and one of the most important ships in maritime history.

Donations can be made online HERE or you can even make a donation via text – just text BRUNEL to 70450 for a one-off donation of £5 (plus standard rate message charge).

Your donation is hugely appreciated, and enables the Trust to:

Conserve the ship; prevent corrosion of the iconic iron hull and make her available for future generations.

Run exciting and accessible museums and education programmes, which inspire people with innovation and engineering. These include the historic dockyard, ship and museum site in Bristol as well as education programmes like the Future Brunels.

Care for and grow the nationally significant Brunel Collection within the Brunel Institute.
