The BRIT Trust


The BRIT Trust is the charitable arm of the British Record Industry and derives a large part of its income from the profits of the BRIT Awards. Other sources of income are from The Classical BRIT Awards and The Music Industry Trusts’ Dinner. Since its inception in 1989, the Trust has distributed over £14m. The principal beneficiaries are The BRIT School for the Performing Arts based in Croydon, a CTC School opened in 1991. The BRIT Trust is the sponsor for the school and has donated £8 million to date. The Trust also makes regular annual payments to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, a charity very close to the record business heart. They also make small contributions to other charities who match our mission statement. More information on the BRIT school can be found here – The BRIT School.
