About Us

William and Charlotte Parks devised an excellent mechanism to ensure that the funds would go to appropriate projects of which they would have approved. In contrast, a number of other trusts established to support animal welfare before and since the Parks Trust’s formation have not honored their founders’ wishes (as laid out in the original documents establishing those trusts).
