Sir Ratan Tata Trust and Allied Trusts

The Sir Ratan Tata Trust and Allied Trusts is a philanthropic institution established in 1919 in accordance with the will of Sir Ratan Tata, the younger son of group Founder Jamsetji Tata.

The trusts seek to be a catalyst in development through implementing community initiatives and by giving grants to institutions in various areas. The grants are provided to civil society organisations that the trusts can partner to undertake innovative and sustained initiatives with the potential to make a visible difference in the areas of education; health; rural livelihoods and communities; arts, craft and culture; and civil society and governance. They also provide grants to individuals for education and medical relief.

The Allied Trusts include Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust, formed in 1974, in memory of Sir Ratan Tata’s wife Navajbai; the Tata Education & Development Trust, formed in 2008; the Sarvajanik Seva Trust and Bai Hirabai JN Tata Navsari Charitable Institution. Read more >>
