Donate to Coventry Cathedral

Your gifts support our vigorous arts, reconciliation and worship communities

We are very honoured to have been given the care of two grade 1 listed buildings, the old Cathedral and New Cathedral.

Our Cathedral's means a great deal to a great number of people, but keeping them open to the public costs £3,000 a day. We receive no government funding towards maintaining these loved Cathedrals and rely on donations and gifts in wills to stay open daily.

We need your support to ensure our Cathedrals remains open and relevant for generations to come. We want to inspire new generations with the remarkable story of Coventry Cathedral and keep our doors open to everyone, free of charge. Explore how you can get involved and make a difference below.

Endowment for Coventry Cathedral

Coventry Cathedral is known across the world for its transforming commitment to peace and reconciliation - a commitment expressed through its history of peace making in the aftermath of Coventry Blitz in 1940. The Cathedral is also a national treasure in the United Kingdom, voted as the nation's favourite twentieth century building, communicating hope through its extraordinary and award winning art and architecture. Our task now is to secure that inspiring message and work of reconciliation for future generations. It is a real challenge, but I hope this will help you to see your own role, large or small, in the remarkable and enduring story of Coventry Cathedral.

Make your donation go further with Gift Aid

Although the Cathedral is technically an “ecclesiastical corporation”, it is treated as a charity by HM Revenue and Customs so we look to reclaim Gift Aid wherever possible. If you are eligible, please do Gift Aid your donation online.

If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid will increase the value of your donation by allowing us to reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift. For every £1 donated, the Cathedral can claim 25 pence of tax at no additional cost to you, therefore a gift of £100 is worth £125 once tax is reclaimed.
