Peterborough Cathedral has charitable status and receives no direct funding from the state to help raise the £3,500 required every day to maintain the operation of the Cathedral 364 days a year.
We are strongly supported by the Peterborough Cathedral Development and Preservation Trust but rely heavily on the generosity of our visitors, supporters and patrons to provide the £1.3 million required each year to maintain and operate the building and support its purpose. This vast sum of money does not however, include the extra funding required to carry out the vital restoration and development work, special events, extra activity, or outreach work across Peterborough and further afield.
The majority of our fundraising efforts are currently being directed to the Peterborough 900 Campaign as with a target of £10 million, we have a great challenge ahead of us.
However, we also have a number of options available to those generous individuals who would like to help sustain the life of the Cathedral by simply joining one of our fundraising bodies – The Company of St Peter or The Friends of Peterborough Cathedral.
