It costs over £3.8million per annum to sustain the Building, Library, Music and Mission of Lincoln Cathedral.

A large proportion of the funds needed to meet this bill comes from individual donors such as you. Without this generosity, Lincoln’s exquisite medieval Cathedral would face an uncertain and insecure future.

One-off donations contribute a great deal to the running of the Cathedral. With so many demands being placed on available funds, every donation helps secure Lincoln Cathedral for future generations.

You can choose a specific area you wish to support or allow the Cathedral to allocate the money to the areas of greatest need.

Lincoln Cathedral (General Fund)
This fund allows the Cathedral to allocate your donation to whatever area of the Cathedral has the greatest need at the time.

Cathedral Building (Fabric Fund)
The Fabric Fund supports solely the fabric (building) of Lincoln Cathedral. Work to secure the Cathedral is continuous as the elements impact upon the stone.

Cathedral Library (Library Fund)
The Library Fund supports the conservation of both books and precious medieval manuscripts that are housed in the Library designed by Christopher Wren, as well as contributing towards the educational activities of the Library.

Cathedral Music (Music Fund)
The Music Fund supports the music within the Cathedral from the Choristers to the famous Father Willis Cathedral Organ.

Gift Aid

The Government allows charities to claim back tax on donations. This tax relief is called Gift Aid.

Gift Aid means charities get extra money added to their donations at no extra cost to the donor. For every £1 donated, the charity currently receives £1.25 when you add Gift Aid.

Please notify us if you:

  • Want to cancel this declaration
  • Change your name or home address
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
