About Imperial College Trust

The Imperial College Trust (formerly the Queen’s Gate Trust) is an independent charity governed by a Board of Trustees (Registered Charity Number 273071), whose objects include the promotion of charitable purposes for the benefit of the College and the support of research projects in connection with subjects taught at the College. The activities of the Trust are supported by donations from third parties and by the careful stewardship of existing assets.

The Trust has two distinct parts: a general fund, which is used to provide support for students and activities within the College; and a number of restricted funds which are used to fund research, primarily in the Faculty of Medicine.
