Final push to fund Ulster Historical Foundation centre relocation

From the Ulster Historical Foundation (

On 19 November 2015 I wrote to you to tell you about our move to new offices in the Corn Exchange building in central Belfast and to ask for your support. I would like to provide you with a quick update.

We had previously indicated that our target amount was £30,000, towards which we had already secured £15,000 in pledges from a number of third parties with the requirement that we raise an additional £15,000 in match funding.

I am very pleased to tell you that we are now over two-thirds of the way towards our match funding goal. To date we have received some £10,300 in Buy-a-Brick donations, leaving only £4,700 to reach our target. And we are confident that with your support we can make it.

I am also pleased to advise that work has now started to transform this space into the Foundation’s new home, and we expect the renovations to be completed relatively soon. You can keep up to date with progress on the redevelopment of the office space at the Buy-a-Brick page on our website, where we will be uploading photographs as the work progresses:

We would like to thank everyone who has already contributed to our appeal – your generosity is greatly appreciated, and would like to ask that if you have not yet contributed, and can do so, that you would consider making a donation.

Whilst the ‘bricks’ in our appeal are nominally £25.00 each (approx. $38 or €36) any contribution – large or small – will be gratefully received.

Best regards,

Executive Director
