Hans Rausing

We were saddened to hear last weekend that our very first donor, Hans Rausing, the Swedish philanthropist who helped build the food packaging company Tetra Pak into a global giant, has died aged 93.

Marit and Hans Rausing (pictured here) have given us a significant amount of money each year to help us address deprivation and disadvantage in a responsive manner. The Marit & Han Rausing Fund has enabled us to be more thoughtful in our grant-making and to have a substantial positive impact on some of the issues that find it harder to get funding.
