The Royal Warrant Holders Charity Fund


The Royal Warrant Holders Charity Fund was established in 1902 to support the charitable activities of Royal Warrant holders.


The Fund donates up to £2,000 to small local charities in which Warrant-holding companies or their employees are actively involved. The donation could be for specific items, activities or projects. Companies can also apply for top up funding, for example if the charity needs £4,000 for an item, both the company and the Charity Fund donate £2,000 each.


Applications are received via Warrant holders from across the country, from Edinburgh to Sussex, and Cornwall to Norfolk.
