The York Minster Fund is a registered charity (number 252157)which works to raise funds to support the conservation and restoration of York Minster’s historic fabric. There is considerable expertise on the board of trustees, which responds to requests from the Chapter of York for support.
It was created in April 1967 to raise funds to repair the cathedral’s Central Tower, which was in danger of collapse, and has since supported a number of conservation projects. These include:
· The St William Window
· The Chapter House Buttresses
· York Minster Revealed- a Heritage Lottery funded project which included the restoration of the Great East Window
· The Camera Cantorum, where the choristers practise for services
· The South Quire Aisle - an ongoing project to conserve and restore the stonework and glass of the south side of the building.
