Trust List December 2017
The last quarter of 2017 has been remarkable. October was the first
month in our history to see 100 trusts listed in a single month, November saw
103, December saw 104 trusts listed.
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, water and sanitation and even research into horses.
As always, there are some very wealthy people involved with these new grant makers, with a billionaire, several families worth tens of £millions and the wife of a very famous food producer. As always, the wealthiest tend to be generalists, so there should be something for everyone in this month's list.
