The National Fund was set up by a trust deed in 1928. The Fund is held on trust for the purpose of reducing the National Debt.

The 1928 deed does not record who the founder was, and it is apparent from accompanying documents that they wished to remain anonymous.

Her Majesty’s Government therefore does not hold information about the identity of the donor who set up the Fund.
