Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation Registered Charity No. 1187090
Schola Cantorum Scholarship Fund
Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation is an independent charity set up to support the Abbey in the fulfilment of its objectives. The Foundation administers the Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum Scholarship Fund which helps to fund scholarships for the Schola Cantorum choristers and, in doing so, is one of three partners, Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation, Dean Close School and Tewkesbury Abbey, who seek to provide the financial support for the Schola Cantorum. Unlike many cathedrals and colleges, Tewkesbury Abbey does not have an endowment for its choristers and so the Choral Scholarship Fund is essential if the tradition of Choral Evensong on a daily basis is to survive in the Abbey.
The Choral Scholarship Fund is entirely reliant on donations it receives from individual supporters and donors, as well as gifts, legacies and grants, and Tewkesbury Abbey Foundation works ceaselessly in seeking help from trusts, charities and grant-making bodies in order to produce the funds needed to ensure the choir’s financial future. The Foundation is very grateful for the support it receives, both great and small, and if you would like to be part of that support and help to preserve the beauty of the daily worship in Tewkesbury Abbey please contact:
