Kingdom Charitable Trust

"Early in my career, my wife and I determined that as our income rose we would not continue to increase our standard of living to match it, but that, as committed Christians, we would give back to God’s creation a share of that which He had so generously bestowed on us.

"As time went on I found myself earning much more than we needed to live and so we decided to establish a grant-making trust. The object was to help those less fortunate than we were to help themselves and to further God’s work in the world.

"At the beginning the trust’s only income was out initial monthly covenant of £300 which was used to make grants to local Christian charities and to contribute to overseas aid projects.

"Later on the trust started to operate a covenant administration scheme for a small number of Christian business people who also had excess income which they wished to make available to God’s work, but who had neither the time, resources or inclination to create their own trusts

"The trust also had some success in raising funds from wealthy people from the world of business who were not necessarily Christian. We found that they too felt a burden for those less privileged than themselves, but wanted to be sure they could trust those they were giving to and that their funds would be used in the most efficient manner. The trust has acted as a conduit and short term investor of these funds prior to their release to selected charitable projects."
