The Feltmakers Charitable Foundation (Registered in England Charity Registration No. 259906)
The Worshipful Company of Feltmakers of London have always had a tradition of charitable giving. The present Foundation was formed by the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers in the 1960’s as a Registered charity and subsequently older and other charitable funds with Charity Commission approval were merged into the Foundation. Under the present Trustees it is very much focused on the 21st Century supporting charitable objectives where needed and relevance are identified at the outset.

Achievement Of Objectives:
This is sought by the Charity Trustees, who comprise the Chairman of Trustees, the Master, the Treasurer and members drawn from the Livery.
The Foundation has received from deceased Liverymen a number of generous legacies. Leaving a legacy to charity in a will is a very tax efficient gift. It will suffice to have a simple clause in your will. We suggest the following clause could be used “I give to the Trustees of The Feltmakers Charitable Foundation (Registered charity No. 259906) care of the Clerk to the Trustees at Post Cottage, Greywell, Hook, Hampshire, RG29 1DA, the sum of x pounds (£ ). The receipt of the said Clerk to the Trustees shall be sufficient discharge of my executors and trustees”.
Donations are always welcome and lifetime gifts to the Foundation are very tax efficient for the donor.
- The Feltmakers Design Awards (annually)
- Pensioner Hatters
- Promotion of Aspects of Feltmaking whether supporting current research and/or historical aspects of Feltmaking.
- City of London based charities.
- Charitable endeavours of individual liverymen of the Feltmakers Company.
From time to time the Trustees are grateful to individual Liverymen for creating fund-raising opportunities for this Charity
