The Guardian Foundation

‘A sense of duty to the reader and the community’ is one of the Scott Trust values, and this responsibility is as strongly felt today as it was when CP Scott first set it down in 1921. Another subsidiary aim of the Trust is to promote liberal journalism and freedom of the press, both in the UK and overseas.

These responsibilities are discharged through the Scott Trust Foundation (working name the Guardian Foundation), a registered charity (number 1027893). This includes the preservation of archive material relating to the histories of the Guardian and Observer, and a continuous programme of education activities and exhibitions at Kings Place (the home of the Guardian and Observer) designed to promote Scott Trust values in the broadest sense. The Foundation also distributes bursaries through the Scott Trust Bursary scheme.
