Jephcott Charitable Trust
The Trust was established by Sir Harry Jephcott, a pharmaceutical chemist and industrialist, in 1965. Jephcott’s company grew into Glaxo, which later merged with GlaxoSmithKlein, the pharmaceutical company. The Trust’s grantmaking is focused on grants that will make a difference. Preference is given to projects, which are having difficulty getting started or raising money from other sources. Grants are made throughout the world. The Trust has four funding priorities: education, population control, the natural environment, and health. Education grants support projects that benefit people of all ages and backgrounds. Population control grants support schemes, particularly educational ones, which help to control excessive growth in population. Natural environment grants support projects that conserve the natural environment although they do not support projects involving animal welfare or heritage sites or buildings. Health grants support a wide range of healthcare projects. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
