Project information

Ongoing Fundraising

To bridge the gap between the Grant In Aid that the Royal Hospital received and our actual running costs which is approximately £2million per annum. Anything over this amount will be used to create an endowment to ensure the continued existence of the Royal Hospital

100 years

Charity information: Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal

  • Need


    The Grant in Aid that we receive does not cover our daily running costs.

    The Royal Hospital Chelsea also needs to create an endowment to ensure our continued existence.


    By continuing to raise funds through the Appeal

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To continue to raise funds for the Chelsea Pensioners through the Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal.


    » Continuing to raise funds.

    What success will look like

    Success will be... if the Royal Hospital Chelsea continues to exist 300 years from now.

  • Impact


    We will continue to admit retired army veterans to the Hospital and ensure them a comfortable and happy retirement.


    If we don't get the funds in to the Appeal we may not be able to meet the daily running costs.

    We hope that these risks have been dealt with by increasing communication with the public.
