Help us achieve a sustainable future

Plas Glyn-y-Weddw is owned and run by an independent charitable trust which is largely self-financed and heavily dependent on donations and private sector support. Unlike many other similar art centres, the Plas does not receive public-sector revenue funding. Therefore, a constant fundraising effort is implemented to help meet the annual running costs of approximately £750,000. The charity's commercial activities fall well short of this and the current shortfall is made up from fundraising campaigns by loyal Friends and Volunteers of the centre and substantial donations from a supporting trust. Please download our Fundraising Leaflet if you would like to help.
