Drapers Charitable Fund

The charity aims to improve the quality of life and expectations of people and their communities within the UK, particularly those disadvantaged or socially excluded, through the award of grants in the fields of education and relief of need.

The charity also aims to support organisations and institutions, particularly those with historic links to the Drapers’ Company and the City of London, within the fields of education, heritage, the arts, and in Northern Ireland, and to promote the Company’s textile heritage through support for technical textiles and textile conservation.

These wide-ranging aims and objectives are achieved by making grants in five broad areas.

• Relief of need
• Education and Training
• Textiles
• Northern Ireland
• Heritage and Arts 
More detailed information on the five areas is available on their website.
