An independent, indigenous and philanthropic grant making organization.


The Neelan Tiruchelvam Trust (NTT) was established in 2001, two years after the assassination of Dr. Neelan Tiruchelvam, and is devoted to sustaining his intellectual legacy as a peacemaker, legislator, constitutional lawyer and institution builder.

As an independent, indigenous and philanthropic grant-making organization, the NTT is well-positioned to understand the issues surrounding the various communities that make up the fabric that is Sri Lanka, while addressing them not only in a country-specific manner but also in a regional and even community-specific manner. With this expertise as its forte, the NTT aims to support sustainable measures that are inclusive, pluralistic, and uphold the sanctity of life.
