There's a link on the main page of this site where you can donate to the Mary Rose Fund. You can also buy items of jewelry here whose proceeds have been ear-marked for the fund as well. It's one of the tabs on the 'products' list.

I caught an episode of a show on the History Channel the other day about the world created by Henry VIII, with an emphasis on architecture.  They visited Hampton Court, a fortress in the north, an abbey, and the Mary Rose Museum.  The Mary Rose was the most interesting part in my opinion.  The plates are stamped with H for Henry and really well preserved, and apparently the technology of the ship was like 50 years ahead of its time.  I'm very jealous of all of you who have seen it in person!

The wreck that revealed the Mary Rose

 

According to naval historian Dr John Bevan, the largely forgotten flagship, which sank in the Solent at Spithead in August 1782, helped divers to locate the wreckage of the Mary Rose in the 1830s – a full 150 years before the stricken vessel was raised from the seabed.

More than 900 people died when the Royal George sank, including 300 women and 60 children who were visiting the ship which was due to head for Gibraltar with HMS Victory.

It's always bunnies.
