As well as the Foundation’s own and affiliate organisations – see listing here –  we also work collaboratively with many other organisations as project and programme associates.

Sir John Cass’s Foundation are proud to work with:


Carpenters' Company BCC v2The Carpenters’ Company

The Carpenters’ Company is a City of London Livery Company. It received its first royal charter in 1477, and was granted a coat of arms in 1466.

The Company was originally established as a medieval trade guild to safeguard the welfare and interests of carpenters in the City of London.  Today, charitable activities and support for the craft of woodworking through scholarships, competitions and the Building Crafts College are the two cornerstones of its work. Sir John Cass was a master of the Carpenters’ Company in 1713 and the Master of the Company processes at Founder’s Day.

The Foundation has an established relationship with the Building Crafts College and supports students through the provision of bursaries.

Skinners' Crest

The Skinners’ Company

The Skinners’ Company is one of the ‘Great Twelve’ livery companies of London.  It developed from the medieval trade guild of furriers and was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1327.

Today the Company is a major not-for-profit organisation involved in running schools, sheltered housing and grant programmes for individuals, educational institutions, and a wide range of small organisations throughout the UK. The Company has a particular focus in the areas of the City of London, the Boroughs of Camden, Enfield, Hackney and Hounslow – where it has strong historic roots.

Sir John Cass was the Master of the Skinners’ Company in 1714, this began the long and effective relationship between the Company and the Foundation. The Master of the Company processes at Founder’s Day. The Foundation has funded the Skinners’ Academy to visit the Hampshire and Cass Foundation Mountain Centre and the Foundation has joined the Friends of Skinners’ Academy to help develop the Academy sixth form. The Academy is also benefiting from a Cass Business School mentoring programme funded by the Foundation.



Aldgate & Allhallows Foundation

Aldgate and Allhallows Foundation is an independent grant making education charity operating in the City of London and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Established nearly 120 years ago, the charity is an amalgamation of three much older trusts that were founded by Sir Samuel Starling (1675); Anthony Death (1679); and Alderman James Hickson (1686) to provide funds for education or trade training for young people from the City of London and East End.

Master Mariners

The Honourable  Company of Master Mariners

The Honourable Company of Master Mariners was formed in 1926 and was made a Livery Company by the City of London in 1932, making it the first new Livery Company to be formed since 1746.

The Company aids nautical schools and promotes nautical research. It ranks seventy-eighth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Loyalty and Service.

Instead of the usual guild hall, the Honourable Company of Master Mariners has a headquarters ship, HQS Wellington, moored on the Thames at Victoria Embankment. The Master usually processes at Founder’s Day and the majority of members of the Master Mariners are Old Cassians as they attended the Sir John Cass Nautical School in the City of London.
