The Cawthron Trust was established in 1919 by a bequest from Thomas Cawthron. The Trust Board owns Cawthron on behalf of the people of the “top of the south”. The Trustees approve the strategic direction of the Cawthron Institute, fund a range of science and education focused community initiatives, and appoint the Board of Directors.
The Cawthron Trust Board also administers a bequest programme that receives donations from philanthropic individuals, and invests these funds in accordance with the principles of The Thomas Cawthron Charitable Trust – to promote and develop scientific excellence and the ideals of Thomas Cawthron.
