Welcome to The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick website

ABOUT US

The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick is one of the oldest charities in the country. Its formation in 1545 came from the negotiations with King Henry VIII’s commissioners, when he effectively took the wealth of the local churches. This legacy lives on today, with the 50% of its distribution benefiting the 5 Anglican churches in Warwick. 30% of the distribution goes to the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation (which is used for means tested bursaries for Warwick children) and the remaining 20% Town Share is available for discretionary grants that benefit the inhabitants of the Old Borough of Warwick.
