Choral Foundation Fund

The choir at Chichester Cathedral has long been admired for the exceptional quality and beauty of its singing. The choir is at the heart of the Cathedral's pattern of daily worship, and we are working hard to secure its future, investing in a first-class musical and academic education for choristers.

The Cathedral’s choir scholarship scheme contributes half of each chorister's school fees, but some families need help with the remainder. Chichester Cathedral Choral Foundation Fund exists to ensure that scholarships and bursaries will continue to be offered, and to cover any shortfall, so that aspiring young singers are not turned away due to financial circumstances. This vital fund ensures inclusivity and supports the Cathedral in maintaining the excellence of the music.

If you would like to support the choir, there are different options available:

1) Make a donation

Choral Foundation Fund Form

Please complete and return to us the downloadable form, with your donation and details. Please do allow us to gift-aid your donation, if you can, as this increases the total we receive by 25%.

2) Become a regular supporter, through monthly or annual giving

To do this, you will need to set up a standing order, via your bank, using the Choral Foundation Fund's account details as set out in the Choral Foundation Fund Form.

3) Leave a gift in your Will

A legacy donation to the Choral Foundation Fund is a precious gift, helping to ensure that choral music can be enjoyed at Chichester Cathedral for generations to come.
