Terrestres Servo Coronas contributes both human and financial resources to projects and the means and extent of support rests exclusively with our Executive Chairman and Advisory Committee. In cases where we feel unable to support a proposed initiative, we provide our reasoning and suggest other avenues of support. Below is a list of projects supported to date:
During 2017, Terrestres Servo Coronas will be involved in the following major projects:-
Church Heraldry Memorial Project
In September we announced the launch of The Church Heraldry Memorial Project. This encompasses the digital storage of vast amounts of heraldry displayed in the churches of England, Wales and Scotland. The material will be uploaded into a dedicated database on The Armorial web site with e-books produced for each Church and county.

We have committed £150 per month for 12 months, to fully fund a social / digital media campaign to raise awareness of the work of the College of Arms Foundation.
