THE MERCERS COMPANY
The Mercers’ Company is a livery company focused on being a philanthropic force for good. We have a rich history dating back over 700 years with philanthropy as the common thread between our past, present and future.
Each year our aim is to distribute £15 million to charitable causes. Our giving is focused on Young People & Education, Older People & Housing and Church & Communities.
Our connection to our original trade has diminished over time but we maintain our centuries-old links with schools, the Armed Forces, our Church Livings, the City of London Corporation and other livery companies.
