Grent Trust is a charity established on 31 December 1979 and registered under the Companies Acts (Northern Ireland), registration number NI14040, and is governed by it's Memorandum and Articles of Association. It is recognised as a charity by the Inland Revenue under reference XN 56712.
Grants are only made to other United Kingdom charities. The directors identify projects and organisations they wish to support and so the Trust does not make grants to persons or organisations who apply speculatively.
The directors currently have a policy of supporting three types of activity, religious organisations, medical charities and third world relief.
The Trust is dependant for its income on investments in ground rents in Northern Ireland.
