Over the centuries charitable trust funds have been built up within the Goldsmiths' Company through the munificence of a variety of benefactors. At the end of the 19th century, 57 separate charities were recorded.

Today, following the amalgamation of most of them, there is just one principal charity, The Goldsmiths’ Company Charity.

Applications are considered under the following categories: General Welfare, Medical Welfare, Youth and Culture. View our case studies to see some of our most recent beneficiaries.

The Goldsmiths' Company also sponsors a number of educational initiatives. These are directed towards primary and secondary education, science, and literacy and numeracy programmes.

Please read the guidelines carefully before applying for a grant.
