A B Charitable Trust

About ABCT

The A B Charitable Trust (ABCT) was set up in 1990 by Yves Bonavero with Anne Bonavero. Its purpose was to support unpopular causes that championed human dignity, to be low-profile and to focus on small and medium-sized charities working close to the ground. See our values.

There are eight Trustees who meet quarterly.

The Trust has no endowment. It is funded annually by the Bonaveros. Two key figures in the early years were David Boehm who was a Trustee for 15 years, and Tim Denham, who retired at the end of 2007, when Sara Harrity took over as Director.

The Trustees reviewed the Trustís grant-giving strategy in September 2016.

The A B Charitable Trust has given over £16 million since it was founded. You can find details of its grants in the latest annual report.
