The Jephcott Charitable Trust was established by Sir Harry Jephcott in 1965. Sir Harry was a pharmaceutical chemist and industrialist and in 1919 he joined Joseph Nathan, an Anglo-New Zealand company which marketed dried milk under the trade name Glaxo. He became the architect of what is one of the world's major pharmaceutical companies, being largely responsible for providing Glaxo with the scientific base on which its prosperity depended. He retired as Managing Director in 1956, subsequently becoming non-executive Chairman and later honorary life President. He was knighted in 1945 and created baronet in 1962. He endowed several charities. The Jephcott family continue to be actively involved with this Trust.

The Jephcott Charitable Trust now makes grants for charitable purposes in four main areas of funding: population control,the natural environment, education and health. Grants are made to to charities in all parts of the world. We like to make grants where our input of funds make a difference, pump priming.
