Established in 2015 the School Visits Fund provides the opportunity for schools to apply for grants to pay for school trips to the City Corporation’s cultural venues. Venues include the Barbican, the Museum of London and Tower Bridge. So far the Fund has had over 110 successful applications to cover travel costs from schools across London, benefitting more than 5,000 students. On average, schools applying for the fund have 50% of their students receiving pupil premium (the national average is 26%).
Sir William Coxen Trust Fund
The charity was established under the Will of Sir William Coxen (1867-1946), a previous Lord Mayor. It applies its income for the benefit of, or to pay over to, orthopaedic hospitals in England and other hospitals or charitable institutions carrying out similar work (with preference being given to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital of Great Portland Street). The endowment produces approximately £100,000 per annum from which grants are made. (Registered Charity 206936). For more information call 020 7332 1434 or email Central Grants Unit.
