Support us Why We Need Your Support Why we need your support Like for many, the COVID-19 pandemic means this a challenging time for the Cathedral financially. With the Cathedral building closed to visitors, much of our income has fallen away. We are very grateful for your support at this time, thank you. It costs £5000 a day to keep this magnificent Cathedral open. We are committed to offering free entry to all who worship and visit here. However, unlike many cathedrals, St Albans does not have a significant endowment of land, and as a charitable organisation we receive no direct funding from Government. We therefore rely heavily on the generosity of volunteers and donors whose support secures the Cathedral and its remarkable heritage for generations to come. Without this support the Cathedral could not continue to stay free and open to all. How can you support us? There are many ways you can support the Cathedral: Donate Volunteer Become a Friend Become a Learning Patron Become a Music Patron Leave a legacy Join our 100 Club Thank you.
