What we spend and how we spend it
Grant in Aid
IWM receives just under half its annual funding as grant in aid from the Department for Culture, Medie and Sport (DCMS). The level of grant in aid is set currently for four years, and the terms under which grant in aid is provided to IWM is set out in the Funding Agreement. IWM reports regularly to DCMS on how it has met the agreed targets and objectives.
The majority of the funding for our core activities is raised by means of charitable giving, philanthropic support, spornsorship and donations, admission charges and IWM's commercial activities. Commercial activities are conducted through the IWM Trading Company Ltd and include retail, corporate hospitality, public catering, air shows, private tours, pleasure flying, publishing and licensing of the collections.
