Donate to Us
As we face the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we need your support more than ever to keep St Paul’s open to welcome visitors and worshippers. It costs £8million each year just to keep St Paul’s open to welcome visitors and worshippers. The closure of our doors for significant periods over this past year, and the collapse of the international tourist market has meant that we are facing a huge loss in visitor income, which normally provides 90% of our annual running costs.
Your support is essential in enabling us to continue welcoming people to the Cathedral, sharing with them our rich tradition of worship, learning and history, and maintaining St Paul’s for generations to come. We are very grateful for any donation you can make to the Cathedral at this time.
St Paul’s Cathedral has been for centuries a place where significant national events have been prayed for and remembered, and in May 2020, we launched Remember Me, an online book of remembrance for those who have died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Building on this legacy, the Cathedral would like to create a physical memorial, an inner portico entrance, to honour all who have died as a result of the pandemic.
Your support will enable us to build a new inner portico at the North transept so that all who enter through its gates will be reminded of the
sacrifice and suffering that so many have endured during this time. This forms part of our Equal Access project, which will give access to everyone
entering the Cathedral. We have already raised over £3m, and we now need £2.3m to finish the project and the memorial. To donate to the
building of the physical memorial, please visit our Crowdfunder
page. Visit Remember Me to view or add a memorial to the online book of
