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.
