Summary of Funding

The Baird Trust was founded by James Baird in 1873.The Trust was re-established as a corporate body by an Act of Parliament in 1939. Recently, the Trust sought to update its aims and purposes and to that end promoted the Baird Trust Reorganisation Act 2005 in the Scottish Parliament. The Act transferred the property rights, interests and liabilities of the 1939 Trust to a new charitable company limited by guarantee, while at the same time updating the Trust’s powers and objects.

The Baird Trust is a Scottish charity assisting the funds and schemes of the church in Scotland, and in particular the work of home mission, church extension, religious education and the support of active and retired ministers and their families.
