The Foundation of St Edmund is an independent charity which exists to support the mission and ministry of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Its purpose is to enable the Cathedral to thrive and flourish by extending its work in Suffolk and beyond.
Since its launch in 2015, through the generosity of its donors the Foundation has funded the opening of the Cathedral Tower to public tours and is funding the Cathedral's music outreach initiative InHarmony. Tower tours allow people to enjoy the glorious views of Bury St Edmunds from a unique vantage point. The tours also generate income for the Cathedral. The InHarmony Project helps hundreds of churches across Suffolk to develop the musical life of their worship and communities.
The Foundation has its own board of Trustees drawn from across Suffolk. The Foundation is able to support the Cathedral and its service to the wider community thanks to the generosity of individuals who feel passionate about the cultural, spiritual and community life of our county and our country.
