How the scheme works

Our Charter Patrons are a committed group of supporters who pledge to donate £1,000 and above per year to ensure children have the love and opportunity they need to thrive.

As a Charter Patron you will enjoy a close connection with Coram. You will receive progress reports showing the impact that, together, we are having on children’s lives. You will receive advance notice of exclusive events, such as the annual Handel Birthday Concert, and information about our future plans and issues affecting children and young people.

Founded in 1739, Coram has evolved from the 18th century Foundling Hospital, to become a dynamic group of specialist charities, supporting over 141,000 children, young people and families every year. We can only continue to do this with your help.


Join us as a charter patron

Charter Patrons are our most committed benefactors and follow in the footsteps of Coram’s original patrons, including the composer Frideric Handel and artist William Hogarth. Together we have been championing the cause of children for over 280 years. We hope you will join us today.


Our Charter Patron Manager, Rachael Corns, is happy to help with any questions you may have. Please contact Rachael at, or on 020 7520 0306.
