Tata Trusts are amongst India’s oldest, non-sectarian philanthropic organisations that work in several areas of community development. Tata Trusts seek to be catalysts in development through giving grants and implementing strategic partnerships to institutions and organisations in the areas of natural resources management; education; healthcare and nutrition; rural livelihoods; enhancing civil society and governance; media, arts, crafts and culture; and diversified employment.
‘The Trusts’ work is guided by the vision and principles of founder Sir Jamsetji Tata who believed in building a prosperous nation by not only uplifting the underprivileged but nurturing the brightest minds in the country.`
Collective Good Foundation is supported by Tata Trusts to facilitate partnerships between companies and implementation organisations, create and disseminate sector-based knowledge to relevant stakeholders and build the capacity of NGO partners.

Our foundation is teaming up with partners around the world to take on some tough challenges. We focus on only a few issues because we think that’s the best way to have great impact, and we focus on these issues in particular because we think they are the biggest barriers that prevent people from making the most of their lives.” – Bill & Melinda Gates

Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives.

Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Dr. Susan Desmond-Hellmann and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.
