The Massy Foundation (Trinidad & Tobago)

The Massy Foundation (Trinidad & Tobago) was formed in 1979, two decades before the United Nations challenged companies to begin directing their attention toward Corporate Social Responsibility. Massy's leadership at the time must be credited for their vision, which sought to encompass more than the traditional focus on shareholder value. Even then, Massy was living up to its vision of being A Force For Good – Creating Value, Transforming Life.

From inception, the Foundation has been focused on poverty alleviation, and the relief of suffering and distress for disadvantaged persons across Trinidad and Tobago. The Foundation’s particular focus, when created, was to assist in the functionality of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), schools and religious bodies.

The Foundation was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on June 18, 1979 and was continued under the provisions of the Companies’ Act, 1995 on April 16, 1999. It is approved by the Board of Inland Revenue as a charity under Section 6 of the Corporation taxes Act. The registered office of the Company is situated at 63 Park Street, Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Its “members” are the Massy Group’s subsidiaries who recommend appointments to the Board. The Board is independent of Massy and makes appointments to fill casual vacancies. The Chairman is elected from among the Directors and is independent of the contributing members of the Massy Group.
