St Paul's Cathedral Trust in America
The St Paul's Cathedral Trust in America is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) public charity that funds vital education for St Paul's Choristers, as well as funding the larger operation to conserve England's greatest symbol of hope.
St Paul's has had a long-standing relationship with the American people, formed largely after the Second World War, a conflict in which thousands of Americans based within the UK were to give their lives. The most visible, striking reminder of this sacrifice and subsequent friendship can be found beyond the High Altar at the very east end of the Cathedral, in the American Memorial Chapel - a space rebuilt after being destroyed in the Blitz and dedicated in its entirety to the American dead of WWII.
The American Memorial Chapel, containing at its heart, the Roll of Honour with the names of the 28,000 American servicemen who died while serving on British soil during WWII, was completed and opened in 1958.
During the Chapel’s construction, the St Paul’s Choristers performed a series of 41 concerts across the US to commemorate the opening of the Chapel and express their gratitude for the Americans who aided Britain during the war.
Currently, the Trust is helping to raise money to support the Learning in Harmony Program, a fundraising effort to refurbish the Cathedral School building and create a fund to bring American children’s choirs to London for summer residences.
