Our History

Est. 1946

The Schroder Charity Trust has a proud history of supporting the UK charity sector for over 70 years.

Established as ‘The Bruno Schröder Charity Trust’ in 1946, the name was later changed to the ‘Schroder Charity Trust’ in 1953.

Members of the Schroder family have served as Directors throughout our history and today the Schroder Charity Trust is served by three generations of the family on the Board.

The Schroder Charity Trust is wholly independent of Schroders Plc, the asset management company that is also associated with the family.
