Welcome to the website of Aldgate & Allhallows Foundation.
We are an independent City of London based educational charity which awards grants. The Foundation is based at the offices of Sir John Cass's Foundation at 31 Jewry Street, London, EC3N 2EY (shown below).
Established nearly 120 years ago, the charity is an amalgamation of three much older trusts that were founded by Sir Samuel Starling (1675); Anthony Death (1679); Alderman James Hickson (1686) to provide funds for education or trade trading for young people from the City of London and East End.
Today, the Foundation is administered by Staff at Sir John Cass's Foundation, a much larger education charity that benefits young people throughout London. This arrangement dates from 1895 and is now regulated by a service level agreement between the two charities.
The Aldgate & Allhallows Foundation has assets of approximately £8m and provides support to organisations and individuals totalling £0.3m per annum. Applicants must fulfil the following eligibility criteria: Residency of either the City of London or the London Borough of Tower Hamlets; be under thirty years of age and in need of financial support to cover the cost of education. Priority is given to those from disadvantaged communities.
The Foundation sees itself as an incubator of new ideas and makes grants that will benefit young people in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets and the City of London. Grants can be made to schools and organisations as well as individuals.
Aldgate & Allhallows and Sir John Cass’s Foundations have worked collaboratively on a number of strategic and innovative projects in the last few years, such as the establishment of the Schools Funding Network and the provision of Junior ISAs for Looked After Children in London, in association with the Share Foundation.
The work undertaken by Aldgate & Allhallows Foundation, as a much smaller charity, complements that of Sir John Cass’s Foundation.
The Boards of both charities, whilst retaining independence from one another, accept that in some circumstances working together benefits both organisations and it is clearly a case of “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.
