Cathedral Fundraising

Donate to the Cathedral fabric fund

The Cathedral is the mother Church of the Archdiocese and has stood in the centre of Edinburgh since 1814. We're committed to improving, maintaining and preserving the fabric of the Cathedral and its unique features now and for generations to come.

It is an old building, which, as you can imagine, needs constant care and attention. It costs around £1000 to run the Cathedral each day, which our weekly collections don’t quite cover. As such, we have created a fabric fund to specifically address repairs and renovations when they are needed.

Repairs and renovations are paid for by special fundraising in Cathedrals all over the world. We very much appreciate your donation towards the building and maintenance work on our beloved Cathedral in the heart of this city.

You can donate here on Virgin Money Giving - please don’t forget to add Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer.

Please contact the Cathedral office if you do not wish your donation to be made online.
