JP Getty Jnr Charitable Trust


The J Paul Getty Jnr Charitable Trust was endowed by Sir John Paul Getty, KBE, who died in April 2003 in London, where he had lived since the 1970s. The Trust started distributing funds in 1986, and since then it has awarded over 80 million in grants to thousands of charities across the United Kingdom.

The Trust is now closed permanently to all unsolicited applications and it is the intention of the Trustees to close the Trust completely by the end of 2015. Please do not send in funding requests of any form as you will not receive a response.

Important: Occasionally fraudulent emails have been circulated to organisations and individuals, claiming to be from the J Paul Getty Jr Charitable Trust, and advising that a sum of money is available to the email recipient. We do not send unsolicited emails of this nature and will never ask for bank account details from any organisation or individual. We strongly advise that you do not reply to any such email.
