The HAC1537 is a charitable partnership between the Honourable Artillery Company and the Army Benevolent Fund. Drawing inspiration from the HAC’s founding year, 1537, the Partnership exists with the intent to raise important funds for the Charity while increasing the awareness of our work among HAC members.
Since its launch in 2015, the Partnership has seen a range of events and initiatives including a Fireside Chat with David Starkey, the City Invitational Cup Cricket Match & Gala Dinner, UK Parliamentary FC vs Army Crusaders Football Match, a special one-off edition of the Wipers Times and much more.
Supporting the Partnership
Individual HAC members have been asked to help the Partnership meet its fundraising target by committing to raise at least £153.70 each, which will help soldiers, veterans and their immediate families in times of need. Those aiming slightly higher are encouraged to try to meet the top target of £1,537.00.

- Make a direct donation
- Take part in a challenge event and raise sponsorship
- Organise a fundraising activity
As a thank you for your support, every member who raises £153.70 will receive a limited-edition HAC1537 pin-badge.
If you are organising your own fundraising event/activity, we will be able to help you with advice, promotional materials, prizes for raffles & auctions, or potentially even guest speakers for an event. Just get in touch and we will be happy to talk through your plans.
