Background to the Charity
The RPLC was endowed by a gift of land from King George III and Queen Charlotte in 1786 and reconstituted in its present form in 1968. Its principal objectives are the making of grants for charitable purposes to voluntary organisations in Richmond, Surrey and a charitable housing operation comprising nearly 100 properties.
The value of the assets owned by the charity is over £60 million of which more than a third is invested in the stock market providing an annual income of over £1m, most of which is given in grants. The contribution of the charity to Richmond, both in grant making and in the housing field is substantial.
