Event Details

At Sir John Cass’s Foundation, we have reached another milestone in Cass’s 300-year history and are embarking on a fundraising programme to enable us, with your support, to substantially increase the number of disadvantaged children and young people in London whom we help each year.

At this inaugural event, we are raising funds to support the bursaries awarded, where disadvantaged young people have promising futures but are unable to apply for the education and support they need for their future. We’ll match any contribution that you make.

We’ve shared in some great success stories such as:


Dominic Cooper, now a Hollywood actor, (The History Boys, Warcraft and the Preacher), recipient of a Cass Scholarship to further his studies at LAMDA.


Lawrence Okolie who received a Sports scholarship to the University of East London where he is still studying, and excelling as a boxer chosen by Team GB to compete at the Rio Olympics.

You’ll hear from bursary recipients on how their lives were changed by a Cass scholarship and there will be an auction of fabulous ‘money-can’t-buy prizes’.

The Foundation will match fund your donations, with no administration fees charged, to make your gift go even further.

  • You’ll get to see the Gardens and rooms at The Charterhouse which has served as a plague pit, a Carthusian monastery, a Tudor Mansion …
  • Elizabeth I met the Privy Council here before her Coronation in 1558 and James I used the Great Chamber, where you will dine, to create 130 new Barons. 
  • Later The Charterhouse became a school and an Almshouse for the “Brothers” , some of whom you will meet on the night.
  • And, you’ll get to have drinks in the newlyopened Sir John Cass’s Foundation Learning Centre, another educational project supported by the Cass Foundation.

Please help us make this event a fun night to remember with money raised going to disadvantaged young people – if you’d like we’ll keep you informed of their progress.

Sir John Cass Foundation

Who we are

Sir John Cass’s Foundation is one of London’s oldest and largest education charities. 

Founded in 1748, it supports education for young people in London through its grant programmes for individuals, schools and organisations and its support for a number of institutions bearing Sir John Cass’s name.


What we do


Today, the Foundation has links in the nursery, primary, secondary and tertiary sectors of education. 

It provides support to its primary and nursery school in the City of London and its secondary school in Tower Hamlets, as well as the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art,

Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University, the Cass Business School, and the Cass School of Education and Communities at the University of East London.

The Foundation also funds schools and organisations benefitting young people from inner London and provides support with education costs to disadvantaged children from inner London. 


Why are we raising funds?


Maybe you are wondering why the Foundation is fundraising when it has assets of its own?  There’s a good reason.

We receive many more applications than we can ever support and we’d like to extend our ability to give grants to many more deserving organisations and individuals.

Our first Fundraising Dinner is to help us to support grants for scholarships to disadvantaged young individuals in need.

We will match-fund your donation and will not charge any administrative fees so the full amount goes to this worthwhile project.
