The Sir Ratan Tata Trust and Allied Trusts is a philanthropic institution established in 1919 in accordance with the will of Sir Ratan Tata, the younger son of group Founder Jamsetji Tata.

The trust was created "...for the advancement of education, learning and industry in all its branches, including education in economy, sanitary services and art, or for the relief of human suffering, or for other works of public utility..."

The trusts seek to be a catalyst in development through implementing community initiatives and by giving grants to institutions in various areas. The grants are provided to civil society organisations that the trusts can partner to undertake innovative and sustained initiatives with the potential to make a visible difference in the areas of education; health; rural livelihoods and communities; arts, craft and culture; and civil society and governance. They also provide grants to individuals for education and medical relief.

The Trusts include:

The Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust: Founded in memory of Sir Ratan Tata's wife, Lady Navajbai, in 1974, works together with the Sir Ratan Tata Trust to bestow grants. 

Tata Education and Development Trust: Set up in September 2008, the Tata Education and Development Trust's activities are multifaceted in nature and promote social welfare, while placing considerable importance on national development. 

Bai Hirabai JN Tata Navsari Charitable Institution: This Trust was established by a deed of trust, dated December 7, 1923, and has had the same board of Trustees as the Sir Ratan Tata Trust. 

Sarvajanik Seva Trust: The Sarvajanik Seva Trust was registered as a public charitable trust in 1975 and provides grants to individuals for reimbursing costs incurred towards medical treatment, besides giving grants/ scholarships to deserving students to pursue higher studies in India.
