The National Trust was founded in 1895 with the aim of saving the nation’s heritage, threatened countryside and coastline. It is a charitable organisation that is funded by membership fees, donations, legacies and income from the commercial operations. In 2014, the trust had more than 3.7 million members.
The National Trust is governed by an elected board of Trustees and led by the Chairman and Deputy Chairman. A range of internal and external groups have been established to help run and advise the National Trust, including the Board committees, expert Panels and Regional Advisory Boards. The President of the National Trust is Prince Charles.
