The Cathedral strives to be a place where people can encounter God and find peace in the heart of the City. 

To do this our doors are open every day of the year welcoming people of all faiths and none. Warmly receiving over 100,000 visitors a year to this stunning architectural and spiritual gem is only possible through the generosity of donations from parishioners and visitors. We are extremely grateful for any gift you feel able to make to support the life and mission of the Cathedral.

6. Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Leaving a legacy to the Cathedral is an enduring way to express what the Cathedral means to you or someone you love. Without the generosity of our benefactors who choose to leave a gift in their will, the Cathedral would not be able to continue its mission here in Nottingham. All gifts, of any size, make a massive difference to the Cathedral. You can leave a gift for general or specific purposes. A general purpose gift means we can use your legacy for whatever is most needed. A specific purpose gift might be your way of supporting an aspect of Cathedral life you really care about, such as its heritage or music. A gift in your will, left to a registered charity such as the Cathedral, is exempt from inheritance tax and reduces your overall residual tax rate. Legacies may be left either for general purposes or for a specific use.


If you have any questions about the options detailed above, please contact the Cathedral Office: [email protected] 

If you wish to discuss making a special gift, donation or are thinking about leaving a legacy to the Cathedral, please contact the Cathedral Dean, Canon Malachy Brett at [email protected] 


What does your gift support?


Day to Day Running Costs

These cover everything from heating, to security, interior and exterior lighting, live streaming, cleaning, administration and much more. These things seem basic, but when are doors our open 12 hours a day for 365 days a year, the costs soon add up. And yet these things are essential for ensuring a warm welcome to all who visit our Cathedral.



The Cathedral is a Grade II* listed building, as with all old, large and historically important buildings, the fabric of the building is in constant need of care and maintenance. There are ambitious plans underway to restore Pugin’s original design to the building, to introduce new audiences to Pugin’s work and then there are also ongoing maintenance and conservation expenses. We have a duty to promote and preserve our beautiful Cathedral and its treasured heritage for generations to come.



The Cathedral has a rich musical tradition and this continues to grow with the development of our children and youth programmes. We have ambitions not only to maintain and develop the Cathedral’s current musical offering, but to its future and the worthy celebration of the sacred mysteries at the Cathedral for generations to come. You can donate directly to the music department via the ‘Support Us’ page.
