Matthews Yard has always been reliant on the support of the local community and until now we have been lucky to have it. There are many ways that you can support our aims and objectives above and beyond booking a ticket for a gig or spending money with Brgr&Beer. There are simple things within reach of all of you that would help us immensely in our quest of providing an affordable hub for arts, culture and creatives in central Croydon. You don0t need to throw money at us to show us a little love. After all, a simple hello, goes a long way.
If you want some ideas and inspiration on completely free ways to support Matthews Yard check our latest blog post which is due to be published in a few days time (link to be added when published). If you are lucky enough to have more disposable income and want to help us meet our objectives of supporting the next generation of creative entrepreneurs then you can do one of three things:
- Become a member. As a member of Matthews Yard, your regular payment will contribute to the maintenance and management of our space. It will help us continue to provide affordable performance and rehearsal spaces for creatives in Central Croydon and in return for this regular support, the Matthews Yard family will shower you with love and benefits. Choose from individual membership, lifetime membership or Company Membership.
- Lend us some money. Those with £1,000 or more of disposable income might consider our loan fund as a way of supporting our aims and objectives. We are currently borrowing funds for several projects and offering 10% interest per year, with monthly repayments over 1, 3 or 5 years.
- Invest in Matthews Yard. As we look to expansion beyond Croydon we need to attract significant capital investment from like-minded backers who share our vision and passion for the creative economy. Minimum investment required is £25k.If you have other ideas for ways to collaborate with Matthews Yard or would like to support us by other means, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
