Our analysis of the new grant-making trusts created by people of wealth (UHNWIs and HNWIs) in the UK in 2012 shows that almost a third, the largest single category, favour education and training with the arts, children and youth and health being next most favoured subjects. Measured in total wealth, education and training was the lead topic with 70% of wealth supporting this area.

These figures are drawn from our report on the people of wealth who created grant-making trusts in the UK in 2012. Foundations of Wealth 2012 is a detailed analysis of these philanthropists, including biographic profiles, education, professional positions, and information on their philanthropy including trusteeships. We include an analysis of each individual’s wealth. On each grant-making trust we include information on aims and activities drawn from public domain sources and, in many cases, from direct correspondence with the trusts themselves. The report includes a networking index to identify the links between philanthropists, companies and these new trusts.

The report is available from Factary at £135, with discounts for clients who subscribe to our New Trust Update report. To order your copy, contact Nicola Williams,, 0117 916 67 40.


Note: The graph shows the numbers of people of wealth creating grant-making trusts in the UK in 2012 and their philanthropic interests. For each individual we have assigned them up to three areas of interest, using the classification system used in Factary Phi.
