About the Trusts
The Laing Family Trusts are a group of four grant-making trusts (Beatrice Laing Trust, Kirby Laing Foundation, Maurice & Hilda Laing Charitable Trust and Martin Laing Foundation) sharing a single administration.
Sir John Laing
The Beatrice Laing Trust, named after his wife, followed in 1952.
Following Sir John’s example of Christian philanthropy, successive generations of the family have established their own charitable trusts and foundations, although only those named above are administered under the Laing Family Trusts' umbrella.
