About the trust

The Trust is a named fund held within The Master Charitable Trust (MCT), rather than a charity itself. The MCT is a donor-advised fund managed by C. Hoare & Co. Bank and is a registered charity (number 1139904). Donations made from The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust are directed by Julia and Hans Rausing and verified by Messrs. Hoare Trustees. The Trust’s giving is supported by a small charity office, managed by Simon Fourmy as Head of Grants. The office provides administration and due diligence on the Trust’s giving and is the point of contact for grant recipients.
