Canterbury Cathedral needs your help!

As restrictions ease across the UK we are delighted to be able to start welcoming visitors back to this special place. However, like everyone, we have been devastated by the Coronavirus pandemic. Over the last 18months we have lost most of our income and survived only due to the immense generosity of our donors.

We are committed to looking after this special place and to serving our local, national and international community. We desperately need your support as we continue to recover and look forward to the future.

You can donate in the following ways:

Donate Online Make a gift online today

JustGiving An online donation through JustGiving

Make a donation to Canterbury Cathedral from the US

American Donations

If you are not able to donate directly via your bank using the IBAN number, you might like to give via the Friends of Canterbury Cathedral in the United States. This organisation was set up to enable US citizens to more easily participate in the life of the Cathedral. We have an arrangement with them whereby you can donate to them, and enjoy all the US tax benefits, and they will pass the donation to us.

Please contact FOCCUS direct (details below) and let them know your intentions. They will advise you on next steps. For more information, please visit their website:

Parish Giving Scheme

Sign up online to donate to the Cathedral.
The PGS makes it possible for donors to:

  • Donate monthly, quarterly or annually by Direct Debit
  • Sign up to inflation-linked giving annually
  • Enhance your gift to your church by having Gift Aid at 25% added to your giving
  • Give securely and donate anonymously, if you prefer

As a donor, you will benefit from a system that is secure, confidential and easy to use, while supporting the Cathedral today and for the future.

This includes the capacity to increase your giving by the cost of living each year, if you choose. Through your generous commitment, the Cathedral can be assured of a regular source of income.
