Charity

The Museum Ethnographers Group is registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales (no. 1023150).

Being a charity requires us to have a clear set of 'objects' and a statement of public benefit. In MEG's case these are as follows:

MEG's objects as a Charity

The Charity's objects ("the objects") are to advance the arts, culture, heritage and science by supporting the practice of museum ethnography. In particular, but without limiting the foregoing, by the exchange of information and resources between museum staff, academics and others concerned with ethnographic collections, by devising guidelines for good practice, and by furthering cultural understanding.

Public Benefit Statement

The day-to-day activities of MEG largely involve museum professionals, academic and others directly concerned with ethnographic collections, but by exchanging information and resources amongst these groups, the standards and aims of museums of ethnography are raised, which has an impact on museum users and the public at large. MEG membership is available to the general public by means of a tiered pricing system, with a concessionary rate available for those on low incomes. All profits support the work of MEG.
