The Traditional Choir Trust (TCT) was started in 2002 by Dr John Sanders in Gloucester who formed a group of Trustees to run the charity whose objects were:

"To give grants, bursaries and scholarships to boys otherwise unable to attend recognised choir schools. To encourage and financially assist choir schools, cathedrals, Chapels Royal, collegiate churches, university chapels, parish churches and other choral foundations to maintain the ancient tradition of the all-male choir."

Unfortunately Dr John Sanders died at the end of 2003 and the Trustees decided to hand over Trusteeship to the Dean & Chapter of Chichester Cathedral who were already Trustees of the Morse-Boycott Bursary Fund (MBBF) as being the TCT's best partner for the future. Donations are actively being sought to build the endowment but if is already possible to support a bursary for one chorister at a Cathedral Choir School.

The TCT, along with the Morse-Boycott Fund, is administered by the Communar of Chichester Cathedral and investment advice is received from the Cathedral's Finance Committee. The Dean and Chapter act as executive Trustees but, to preserve a link with the original charity, the Very Reverend Michael Tavinor, Dean of Hereford, has been appointed as Patron of the TCT and he attends the Annual General Meetings.
