Your support

The Footprint project relies on generous grants and donations. The total cost is £19.3 million. Thanks to a grant of £10.7 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund and many other generous donations, the project can go ahead. But there is still a lot left to raise.

Whatever you can donate will help the Abbey serve its visitors and the city.


Your donations will be generously matched by the Brownsword Charitable Foundation. This means that any donation you give to the Footprint project will automatically be doubled: if you donate £10, the Brownsword Charitable Foundation will also give £10 - your £10 donation is worth £20 to Footprint! Simply use the reference ‘FPBF’ when donating.
