Founded by Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, Lund Trust supports charities and causes they especially care about. Lund is a sister to Lisbet and Peter’s Arcadia Fund, which focuses on preserving endangered culture and nature and promoting open access. Since 2002 Lund Trust has given $64.5m to more than 350 organizations, in the UK and internationally.

Lund Trust is named after Lisbet’s home city in south Sweden. In Swedish it also means ‘grove’, or ‘a tree copse’. This reflects Peter and Lisbet’s focus on supporting communities in Sussex, London, Scotland and Sweden, and on the Environment.

We do not accept unsolicited applications for funding.
