Trust List November 2017
The second half of 2017 has seen a real increase in the number of new
grant makers being set up, with a 15% increase in the past six months, compared
to the same time period last year.
Since July 2012 we've only ever seen two editions with 90 or more new grant makers, the last edition had 100 new grant makers, this one has 103.
With more grant makers, we inevitably see a greater range of topics of interest; along with the classic 'relief, education and health', we see trusts interested in animal welfare, community, conservation, human rights, a range of medical causes, social welfare and good citizenship, and even support towards volunteer costs for London charities.
As always, there are some very wealthy people involved with these new grant makers, with several very wealthy families included. As always, the wealthiest tend to be generalists, so there should be something for everyone in this month's list.
