The Gerald Coke Handel Foundation supports the Gerald Coke Handel Collection at the Foundling Museum. Through the endowment accompanying the Collection, which is managed by the Foundation, it provides research resources for all those interested in learning about the composer George Frideric Handel, his associates and contemporaries, as well as the musical environment of his time, and the printing and publishing of music in London and elsewhere in the 18th century. The Foundation's trustees also assist and advise the Collection staff with acquisitions, publications and events relating to the Collection and the objectives of the Foundation.
