The Newby Trust (the “Trust”) was formed in December 1937 by Mr. H.N. Smith (then resident in Newby, near Scarborough in Yorkshire). The original purpose of the Trust was:

to promote all or any purposes which now are or hereafter may be deemed by law to be charitable and in particular the advancement of education, the furtherance of health and the relief of poverty, distress and sickness.

The Trust was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on 1st January, 1938 and was registered as a charity in May 1964.

Since its foundation the Trust has worked broadly within the guidelines set out by its founder, funding education, health and social welfare. From 1988 to 2023, the trustees also chose a special category each year as a focus for part of their grant-giving. In 2024 the trustees added a new category of support for the environment.
