Supporter Type


Philanthropic initiatives in the house of Tatas are as old as the commercial and industrial enterprise of the group. The first Tata Trust, the J.N. Tata Endowment for Higher Education of Indians, was set up in 1892. Three decades later, in 1932, the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust was established by Sir Dorabji Tata who donated all his worldly possessions to the Trust. Now known as the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust and the Allied Trusts, the entity comprises the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, the Jamsetji Tata Trust, the R.D. Tata Trust, the J.R.D. Tata Trust, the Tata Education Trust, the Tata Social Welfare Trust, the J.R.D. and Thelma J. Tata Trust, the J.N. Tata Endowment for the Higher Education of Indians, the Lady Tata Memorial Trust and the Lady Meherbai D. Tata Education Trust.
