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 the following areas:

Application Form:  Apply in writing using the Application Summary Sheet which is available to download from the website.

Deadlines:  You can apply at any time of the year. The Charities Committee meets five times a year and applications will normally be considered at the next meeting following submission, providing they are received at least four weeks before the date of the meeting. However, this is dependent upon the number of applications received and it cannot be guaranteed that an application will be considered at a particular meeting.
