Members of the Royal Family have links with hundreds of charities, military associations, professional bodies and public service organisations. Some are well known, while others may be smaller bodies working in a very specialist area or on a local basis only.

Having a Royal patron or president provides vital publicity for the work of these organisations, and allows their enormous achievements and contributions to society to be recognised.

You can use this database to find the organisations with which members of the Royal Family are associated.

    DFC is not a separate organisation, but operates as a part of FCM; its full title is Friends of Cathedral Music's Diamond Fund for Choristers. The distinction between the Fund and its parent body is that DFC's purpose is specifically to help and support the children of our cathedral and collegiate choirs, while FCM has a much wider brief dealing with requests for assistance across the whole range of music provision in our Cathedrals, Colleges and Major Churches, including provision of rehearsal facilities, music, singers for the back rows, organ scholars, as well as choristers.
