The Sackler Trust

The Sackler Trust has been supporting research and education charities across the UK since 2010. Over that period, the Trust has committed more than £60 million in support of charitable activities in the fields of medical science, healthcare, and access to education and the arts, as well as supporting community organisations, heritage sites and projects which promote social good.

The charitable institutions we support range from some of the UK’s leading universities and cultural institutions to small local organisations dedicated to improving life at an individual community level, as well as supporting charitable work worldwide. They span work that includes global conservation projects, education for disadvantaged children, museums, universities and support for refugees.


Supporting advancements in medical science by creating the infrastructure necessary for long term medical research and innovations.


Supporting a range of projects in the area of education, notably those focused on helping improve access to education for the disadvantaged


Partnerships with organisations to help widen access to the visual and performing arts.


Supporting projects that preserve heritage sites and important cultural icons now and for future generations to enjoy and learn from.


The Trust supports a diverse range of organisations that work to protect the environment; from migratory sharks in our oceans to the spectacular diversity of plants and fungi that populate our planet.


Helping people and communities, particularly those most vulnerable and in need of support, is an important part of what we do.
