Trusts created Expressly

Mark Pawlowski 'Purpose trusts: obligations without beneficiaries?'

The headnote to this article asks: "To what extent are trusts for non-charitable purposes valid? Is a proprietary beneficiary a necessary prerequisite to a valid trust? The growing importance of offshore jurisdictions with non-charitable purpose trust legislation suggests that such trusts do perform an important commercial function and should, therefore, be recognised under English law".

The following is a link to a web site containing an enthusiast's account of the so-called Shavian alphabet. The will of George Bernard Shaw failed in its attempt to establish a trust for the purpose of research into this alphabet (Re Shaw [1957] 1 W.L.R. 729). The trust was held not to be a trust for the charitable purpose and therefore failed as being a trust purely for private purposes. However, the residuary beneficiaries of his will graciously awarded a prize to the best translation into the alphabet of one of Shaw's plays, and the alphabet has had enthusiastic supporters ever since.
