We raise and distribute charitable funds for causes connected to our industries, certain institutions within the City of London and deserving, disadvantaged members of society.

Our charitable donations are focused on training, specifically in the aerospace, automotive and coachmaking industries.

Donations are as substantial as possible, but bursaries are allocated on an annual basis and, because funds cannot always be guaranteed, the Livery cannot accept commitments to individuals for long-term educational courses.

The Company provides scholarships and bursaries to support education and training at various levels in the automotive, aerospace and coach building sectors.

Among these are awards to undergraduate and graduate aerospace scientists, an award to a student of the Royal College of Art studying vehicle design and a scholarship to enable a mechanic or technician to obtain an aircraft maintenance licence. We also offer a STEM scholarship with Jaguar Land Rover for young women going to university.

Three flying scholarships, named after de Havilland, Winkle Brown and Victor Gauntlett, are provided for individuals who have shown aptitude and determination to become a pilot.

We provide support to schools and students through the Livery Schools Link, the Saturday Engineering Club and Imperial College Makerspace Programme and also through the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
