Welcome To The Sigrid Rausing Trust

The Sigrid Rausing Trust is a charitable foundation founded in 1995.

Our guiding principles are:

We recognise the value of core funding.
We look for good and effective leadership.
We are flexible and responsive to needs and opportunities.
We value clarity and brevity in applications and reports.
We look to establish long-term relationships with grantees.

The Trust runs nine programmes:

Advocacy, Research and Litigation
Detention, Torture and Death Penalty
Human Rights Defenders
Free Expression
Transitional Justice
Women's Rights
LGBTI Rights
Xenophobia and Intolerance
Transparency and Accountability

Please note that we do not accept unsolicited applications.

It has come to our attention that hoax emails claiming to be from our chair and founder, Sigrid Rausing, have been sent to groups and individuals offering a substantial donation and inviting a response to a fraudulent contact email. We advise you to disregard the emails.

If you have any doubts about any emails received apparently from the Trust or any of our trustees or employees, please contact us at info@srtrust.org
