Friends' Grants

Your support makes a difference

As Gloucester Cathedral’s best friend and principal partner, our income from subscriptions, legacies and donations enables us to continue to support the Cathedral through grants.

Funds go towards maintaining the fabric of the Cathedral and supporting the world class musical tradition. Sometimes the Friends give a grant for one-off projects such as the famous Gloucester Candlestick and an historic map for the Library. The support of the Friends is essential to ensure that almost 1,000 years of heritage and music are maintained for future generations.

In the challenging times of the pandemic, the Friends gave a substantial emergency grant to the Cathedral and supported the Beacon of Hope appeal in 2020.
