Make Your Mark

You can help Suffolk’s past have a future

We have launched a new fundraising campaign inviting all Suffolk’s citizens to play a part in preserving Suffolk’s archival heritage.

Funds raised will contribute towards building costs at The Hold, specialist document care, facilities and equipment. In addition, funds will be used to support future education and outreach work across the whole of Suffolk.

The Suffolk Archives Foundation wants everyone to have an opportunity to be remembered as a supporter of The Hold, and has commissioned a special book for donors to sign, which itself will become part of Suffolk’s historical archives!


The book has been specially crafted by a local bookbinder and will be kept at The Hold and displayed.

For a gift of £20, donors will be invited to attend a special ‘signing ceremony’ to put their name in the book when The Hold opens.

For a gift of £100, donors will be invited to attend the signing ceremony, and receive an invitation to a launch event at The Hold.

Companies can join as a Corporate Friend for £100 and enjoy the same benefits as individuals above.

Names of donors will also be put into a draw for the chance to sign a special area of the interior wall of The Hold.

To make your donation visit our Make Your Mark page on CAF.

Thank you for your support!

We hope that launch events and signing ceremonies for those who have signed up to the Make your Mark campaign will be able to take place sometime in 2021 when Covid restrictions allow.
