Our endowment

We are one of the oldest foundations in the country with origins dating back to 1123. Our strong foundation of financial security and our track record of careful investment has allowed us to commit to a funding target of £30 million a year until 2022. However, only your donations ensure that we can continue to support our hospitals and the Barts School of Medicine and Dentistry in this way, building on past success and experience to enhance and increase the impact of the work we fund.
