Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Allied Trusts

Established in 1932 by Sir Dorabji Tata, the elder son of group Founder Jamsetji Tata, the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and Allied Trusts are one of India’s oldest and largest philanthropic foundations. The trusts offer monetary assistance to students and economically disadvantaged patients, make financial contributions to institutions and provide financial support to non-governmental organisations in the country. Their vision of constructive philanthropy has been sensitive to the fast-growing needs of a developing nation, and the projects and programmes they support bear contemporary relevance.

The Allied Trusts are primarily smaller trusts; while some have a specific mandate, the rest are broad-based in their approach to grant-making. The Allied Trusts are JN Tata Endowment, JRD Tata Trust, Jamsetji Tata Trust, JRD and Thelma J Tata Trust, Tata Education Trust, Tata Social Welfare Trust, RD Tata Trust and Lady Tata Memorial Trust.
