The William Herschel Society requires funds to undertake its activities promoting the remarkable contribution of the Herschel family to 18th and 19th century music and science in the UK and especially Bath.
The Society is funded by the subscriptions of its membership and donations from members and philanthropic individuals both in the UK and internationally. In this way, the Caroline Herschel Prize Lectureship is able to be awarded annually to outstanding female astronomers early in their careers. It also funds STEM visits bringing Astronomy and Astrophysics into schools for Key Stages 1 and 2 and helps new musical and dramatic works about the Herschels in reaching wider audiences.
