About us

The Stafford Trust was set up in 1991 by the late Mrs Gay Stafford of Sauchie Estate near Stirling and, on her death in 2005, the residue of her estate was bequeathed to the Trust.

The Trust does not actively fundraise but seeks to continue the philanthropic work desired by the late Mrs Stafford through the careful stewardship of its existing resources.

The Trust makes grants to charities from the income generated from the trust fund.
