Trust List September 2021
This edition sees a continuation of the slow number of new charity registrations this year. Yet, whilst the overall number of new charities is down, the number of new grant makers is less affected. Over the past 5 years, an average of 76 new grant makers registered in preceding Septembers, against an actual of 76 this month. Precisely the average of the past 5 years.
As always, along with the classic 'relief, education and health', we see several trusts interested in the Arts, community, conservation, several medical charities, social welfare, mental health and young people.
Some remarkable people have set up trusts this month, including Platform Earth, with Flora Fairbairn of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Antonia Packard (CEO of the Packard Foundation) listed as members of the advisory board. Ben Goldsmith & family - (Lord) Zac and Jemima Khan are worth around £300m. Earl Bathurst's estate is worth at least £45m, whilst the Tejani family are estimated to be worth around £100m.
