Charitable Work

The Cordwainers’ Company is proud of its long history of supporting good causes through charitable giving.

The focus of this charitable giving is a number of organisations with whom we have long-established links. These are charities which we fund according to the wishes of our original benefactors, those related to our trade and those with which we have historic connections.

Charity Report

The annual report provides information about the charity beneficiaries the Cordwainers have supported and the projects and people our charitable giving has helped.

If you have any questions about the Cordwainers’ charitable giving, please contact the Charity Manager at or on 020 7929 1121.

Please note that none of our charities are open to applications. From time to time, the Company researches and selects new charities to support, but we do not accept unsolicited funding applications.


The 110 livery companies of the City of London are united by a commitment to philanthropic endeavour and together, they contribute £75 million to charitable good causes every year. The work of the 47,000 livery members who share their expertise and resources for the benefit of so many charities, is summarised in the latest report from the Pan Livery Steering Group.

Fundraising Events

Cordwainer members repeatedly and wholeheartedly embrace the Company’s ethos of ‘doing good and having fun’.

They support a wide range of fundraising activities which are fundamental to the Company’s philanthropic work. From jumping out of planes, to taking part in Tough Mudder obstacle courses, cycling from Cordoba to the City of London, to completing marathons and triathlons, swimming in the Serpentine to rowing the Thames, to the (slightly more sedate) sponsored walks, pub quizzes, carol singing and family days – Cordwainers always put their best foot forward in support of the Company’s good causes.
