Additional Information on the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust

In 2008 JRCT terminated its South Africa program, through which the Trust had donated large sums of money to “promot[e] a just and peaceful” culture by “[reducing] rural poverty and addressing the problems of violent conflict on all levels of [South African] society.” JRCT’s first grant to South Africa was made in 1910, but it was not until the 1960s that grant-making under this program reached significant levels. Between then and early 1994, these grants were intended mostly to support those who resisted the apartheid regime.
