“…the greatest and noblest gift that ever was given for charity, by any one man, public or private, in this nation.” Daniel Defoe, 1722

The Charterhouse continues to fulfil the charitable wishes of its founder, Thomas Sutton, as it has done since 1611. Demands on the Charterhouse for the provision of care for the Brothers, and preservation of our buildings, are as great now as at any time in our history. Any gift, no matter how big or small, will enable us to continue to support our community.

The Charterhouse is a private foundation, relying on the investment income from our founder’s legacy. We also raise funds by offering tours and venue hire, and donations from supporters help to fulfil our obligations. Your support is vital.


For just £75 a year, as a Friend of the Charterhouse you can enjoy numerous benefits including access to stay in our guest room, a discount in our shop, and invitations to various exclusive events. Membership of our Friends’ scheme also contributes vital funds towards the costs of running the alms house and preserving our historic site and collections.
