Weʼre raising £40,000 to ensure the future of the Gallery we need to make major repairs. The floor will collapse in 6 months & the cost is an eye watering amount!
- Sheffield, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We need some help!
The floor of the framing department is likely to collapse within 6 months unless urgent repairs are carried out and the costs are coming in at an eye watering amount! Sadly this is our responsibility under lease. There are a number of other significant building repairs also needed but nothing as urgent as the state of the floor.
Ideally we need to raise around £40,000 – which is a terrifying target.
When we reach £100 - Cupola will hold a staff 'Bake Off' - with customers invited to sample and decide the winner!
When we reach £500, Karen Sherwood will do a 'fancy' dive from the 5 metre platform. Karen is not keen on heights!
When we reach £1000, Karen, Graham, Pete & Sara will all jump from the 10 metre platform. NONE of the above are keen on heights and Karen is terrified!!
More milestones to be announced.
In 2021, the gallery reaches its 30th anniversary and we would love to be able to feel confident about its long term future, continuing to provide artists space to take risks, have fun and display and sell quality contemporary artwork.

About the fundraiser
Established in 1991 Cupola has remained in the same location on Middlewood Road in Hillsborough, Sheffield, for 28 years. Fiercely independent we have survived without outside funding only through the hard work of our artists and loyal customers.
