Mr Simon Gibson, who farmed near Newmarket, established the Trust in 1975 as a general grant providing trust. Since then, the Trust has been added to and built to
a current managed fund value of over £16million.
In the Spring of each year the Trustees meet to agree dispersals. Typically, some 140 charities are supported, of which approximately 60 are regular
beneficiaries. Grants range from £1,000 to £20,000, the typical grant being £3,000-£5,000.
The Simon Gibson Charitable Trust is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (Registration No. 269501).
