About Us

The East India Charitable Trust was formed at the instance of the then Calcutta Branch of the United Kingdom Citizens’ Association and was registered as a Charitable Society in 1949. The objective of forming the Trust was to absorb small charitable units and Institutions in Eastern India so as to form a cohesive whole, to minimize conflicting appeals for support and to strengthen administration and cooperation.

The five units under the EICT are, Tollygunge Homes, Lavinia House, The EICT Nursery, Mary Cooper Home and St Mary’s Hostel.

Apart from the five units under the EICT, the Trust is actively involved in the following:
  • The Sherwood House Trust – This Trust was initially formed to protect the orphan offsprings of the “Raj” and was merged with the EICT in 1950. At present it helps provide for the education of needy girls and boys studying in different schools of Kolkata.
  • Education Grant & Scholarships – Needy and deserving students of schools and colleges are provided Grants and Scholarships for professional training after completing their formal education. The monetary assistance is disbursed by the EICT on behalf of Oxford Mission, London, and also out of the Trust’s own resources.
  • Grants-in-Aid to Beneficiaries – The EICT supports nearly 100 very needy persons with monthly grants.
  • Ex- Services League Beneficiaries - The EICT administers the financial help given to Ex-Servicemen by the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League, London.
  • British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia (BACSA) – The EICT holds a corpus on behalf of BACSA and disburses funds to various cemeteries for their upkeep as and when needed.
