The Charity

These days, Hymns A&M is no longer just about hymn books - though that of course remains a very important area for us.

We are a modern, forward looking organisation still actively pursuing 'the advancement and promotion of religion' in all its business and charitable work.

The objectives of the charity are:

  • to promote the advancement of religion;

  • to establish and support or aid in the establishment and support of any Charitable Corporation, Association, Institution, College, School, Society or Body whatsoever which in the opinion of the Association is connected with the work of the Church of England or any Church in communion with it, and to subscribe and guarantee money for any such charitable purpose;

  • to aid and support any Charitable Corporation, Association, Institution, College, School, Society or Body which may not be in a direct relationship with the Church of England as aforesaid but whose aims and objects are, in the opinion of the Association, such as a Church of England organisation could properly aid and support.

Grants from Hymns Ancient & Modern

Grant-giving is central to all that we do as a Christian charity. All purchases of HA&M products and services contribute towards a pool used in charitable giving.

Surplus funds from our businesses are donated via Grants each year to dozens of organisations around the UK. These include a wide variety of projects, big and small, from schools, churches, colleges, charities - all of which meet the criteria we have for a grant.

Grants are given in free books - for example, if you order 100 copies of Ancient & Modern Words Edition you pay for only 75.
