Our Aims In Making This Appeal

Through the fundraising efforts of dedicated members and supporters of John Paul Jones Birthplace Museum Trust the goal of creating a museum to the memory of John Paul Jones and preserving the cottage birthplace of this remarkable man has been achieved.

In order to protect this achievement for the future the Trustees are now seeking to establish funds which will guarantee an income to offset the annual running costs and ensure the long term preservation of the cottage. These annual financial committments are modest but unfortunately they presently exceed the income derived from visitors and other fundraising activities.

Please see the accompanying financial statement of our affairs.

Our target is to create through your generosity, an investment fund sufficient to offset the annual deficit and support our activities and allow visitors to enjoy the evocative atmosphere of the cottage and marvel at the life story of John Paul Jones for many years to come.

Please note that all our Trustees are voluntary and unpaid and 100% of your donation will be used to assist in keeping the birthplace Cottage open to the public.
