About Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust

- Advertisement -

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust was set up in 1979 by their son and daughter in law, John and Elnora. Its objectives have closely followed the interests of the Ferguson family in their commitment to education, peace, and reducing poverty in developing countries.

In 1997, the substantial holding of Taylor and Francis shares became valuable when the publishing company was floated, and its subsequent merger with Informa further enhanced the value of the shares in the Trust.

Since then, more than £40 million has been distributed to a range of charities working in the UK and overseas.
