Sir Ratan Tata Trust
Sir Ratan Tata trust is one of the oldest philanthropic institutions in India, and has played a pioneering role in changing the traditional ideas of charity and introducing the concept of philanthropy. Sir Ratan Tata Trust (SRTT) largely made grants in Bombay. Whilst the Trust was largely known for making individual grants for education and medical relief, it also made institutional grants. Education, health and support for allied trusts were the mainstay of institutional grant making, with a few grants also being made for the promotion of arts and heritage, women’s development, rural development, etc. Compared to the grants made currently, these were at best modest in comparison.
Euro Skin Bank
Euro Skin Bank (ESB) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization maintaining an allograft skin bank and supporting research in burn treatment. The Dutch Burns Foundation was established in 1971 as a national charity with the dual aim of promoting burn injury prevention and supporting research into treatment. As the value of human allogenic skin in the treatment of severe burn injuries became apparent, this institution was encouraged to set up a centralized skin bank for donor skin in the Netherlands. The arguments for a centralized facility included concentration of expertise, low investment and exploitation costs, and increased possibilities for research into wound coverage (R.P. Herman’s, personal communication). The last decades the demand for GPA has increased and the Dutch Burns Foundation reorganized the skin bank, re-launching it as Euro Skin Bank (ESB). The Dutch Burns Foundation is still supervising ESB since maintenance of a skin bank is one of the aims of the Dutch Burns Foundation.
