The OW Charitable Trust

The four former OW trust funds, set up either by or in memory of OWs, while retaining their separate identities, are now grouped into one charity known as the OW Charitable Trust (Charity Number 1009980).

The four funds incorporated into the OWCT are:
– The Old Wellingtonian Society Charitable Trust
– The Herbert Old Wellingtonian Trust
– The Melissa Morgan Memorial Fund
– The Bevir Memorial Fund

The OWCT’s funds are invested as a single portfolio managed by stock brokers, Charles Stanley.

The trustees report annually to the Charity Commission. The OWCT’s page on the Charity Commission’s website is updated by the OW Secretary who, ex officio, also acts as secretary to the OWCT’s trustees. Copies of the OWCT’s most recent documents may be downloaded via the links below.
