Trusts and Foundations

Chiswick House and Gardens is very grateful to the trusts and foundations which fund a range of projects, activities and developments to natural and cultural heritage on site. Their charitable donations are paramount to our success and help us to meet our charitable objects, providing an estate for everyone to enjoy. Our most recent supporters include:
heritage find

National Lottery Heritage Fund

In June 2020, the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded CHGT a grant of £23,000.  Like many charities and organisations, we have been affected by the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. CHGT has seen an income loss of £500,000 and this crucial grant will help us cover some running costs and Ranger duties in the coming months.

In July 2018, the National Lottery Heritage Fund reaffirmed its commitment to CHGT’s original vision and the development of the House and Gardens by awarding the Trust an £85,000 Resilient Heritage grant. The money was intended to help CHGT prepare for the next crucial stage of developments onsite, and included funding for an access audit, research around visitor engagement, support with streamlined governance arrangements and the appointment of the Trust’s first full time fundraiser.

We are also grateful to all the trusts and foundations whose support, whilst not listed here, is equally as valued. If you are a trustee of a charitable trust or want to find our more please get in touch with the Development Department on +44(0)20 3141 3353 or email
