The President's Welcome Message, 2024


The College of Arms Foundation welcomes you. We are now entering our fifth decade of service to the College of Arms and English heraldry. We operate separately from but work very closely with the Garter King of Arms and the other Officers of Arms and Staff of the College. Last year,  the year of our 40th anniversary, was a banner year for our activities.

We fully funded the conservation of Norfolk 3, an important pedigree manuscript from the early 19th Century, work that will be completed this year. The College published A Catalogue of Manuscripts in the College of Arms, Records Volume 1, a project the Foundation helped to fund.  You can learn more about these projects on our Services & Projects page. We also conducted two online heraldry lectures in partnership with the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society.

We welcome you to help us promote English heraldry by financially supporting the conservation and publication efforts at the College of Arms as well as our other projects. While we aim our efforts at the American audience, we cheerfully encourage and accept persons from other countries as well to join.

Please explore our website then reach out to me directly at president@coafus.org for more information.
