Our promise to you

We’re committed to showcasing some of the greatest palaces ever built, conserving them for future generations and bringing their stories to life.

After all, tales this extraordinary deserve to be told and re-told for years to come. For that to be possible, we rely on the generosity of all our supporters, from our online communities to our members, donors and visitors. In return we strive to respect your wishes, protect the information you give us, and inspire you with our palaces, stories and the work we do to preserve them.

We promise to:

  • We will share the stories of the contemporary workings of our palaces and of the work we do to preserve them for future generations.
  • We will let you know how you can Play Your Part, so you can support us in a way that suits you. We will value every contribution, large and small, and put your support to work as quickly as we can.

Protect the information you give us

  • We will respect all the information you share with us, which means keeping it secure and confidential at all times, and never selling it to an outside organisation.

Treat you with respect

  • We will always be polite when we contact you, and when you contact us. That includes acknowledging any mistakes we make and working with you to put things right.
  • We won’t put any pressure on you to support us. We are particularly sensitive when engaging with vulnerable people, which is why we make sure all volunteers and suppliers adhere to the Institute of Fundraising’s policy on vulnerable people.
  • We will never make cold calls.

Work collaboratively

  • If you have a suggestion, a view or complaint, we want to hear from you. You can get in touch by using our contact us form.
