The York Minster Revealed project involved a £20million investment in the cathedral over five years. The project was supported by a generous £10.5m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The Chapter of York worked in partnership with the York Minster Fund, which raised the match funding required by HLF for the project to proceed.
Thanks to National Lottery players, the Heritage Lottery Fund invests money to help people across the UK explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about - from the archaeology under our feet to the historic parks and buildings we love, from precious memories and collections to rare wildlife.

We are grateful for the support of philanthropist Hamish Ogston CBE who supported the project with a very generous donation of £2m to restore the stone and glass at the East End of York Minster. His timely donation was instrumental in securing the £10.5m from the Heritage Lottery Fund and was a turning point in the development of the York Minster Revealed project.
