Sustainability and efficiency

To help the Royal Hospital Chelsea plan for the future, we ask our Corporate Patrons to commit to supporting us for a minimum of three years.  This helps us to budget effectively and operate in the most efficient way possible, for the benefit of the Chelsea Pensioners.


Cost: £12,000 per annum

A minimum payment of £756 (including VAT) secures all Corporate Patron benefits.  The balance of £11,244 is a suggested donation, but you may purchase the benefits package separately without making a further donation.  The split between benefits and donation for VAT purposes remains the same as VAT is included in the benefits amount.
