Do you love Salisbury Cathedral?  Have you visited or worshipped here?  Have you been moved by the magnificent gothic architecture or embraced in the warm welcome given as you enter this place built to the glory of God?


If you feel you want to do more to help, then please consider joining the Friends of Salisbury Cathedral, a charitable partner of Salisbury Cathedral which provides a means for direct giving by individuals or Parish Church Committees.  Engage with other like-minded people who give their financial support to care for this beautiful and iconic building.  The Friends support the fabric, fittings, ornaments, furniture, music and monuments, all fundamentally enhancing the Cathedral's life, worship and ministry.


We love the building and community.  Any contribution you make direct to the Friends by annual subscription, donation or a gift in your will, funds vital projects that are important to Salisbury Cathedral. Since forming in 1930 we have made grants for projects both great and small, worth millions of pounds at today’s values.
