The Charleston Trust

Charleston Trust - Core Costs

Charleston receives no public funding and its long term sustainability will be provided by the Charleston Centenary Project, which will be completed in 2016. Meanwhile, funding for core costs are needed to meet the increasing demands of a growing organisation.

Charleston’s income generation suffered in 2012 because of the Olympics Games effect and the wettest summer on record meaning that visitor numbers and spend were down. Fundraising for core costs was also harder because of increased competition. Additional core funding would address these problems and help pay for general running costs.


Core funding would provide the Trust with much needed security as it addresses the 2012 income deficit. Additional core funds would also address fundraising, retail and visitor needs for the next three years.
