Eigentum

In 1991 gründete Alan Wyndham Green die Truehand ''Godinton House Preservation Trust'', einer Treuhand mit einem Ausschuss mit Trustees, um die Zukunft vom Haus und seinem Inhalt, und den Parkanlagen ''im öffentlichen Interesse'' zu sichern. Er machte es deutlich, dass das Haus nach seinem Tod nicht zu einem Museum werden sollte. Das Kuratorium wird auch weiterhin seine Wünsche zu ehren, im Treuhandvertrag eingearbeitet, zu Godinton zum Nutzen zu erhalten, Wertschätzung und Aufklärung der Öffentlichkeit; kurzum, um den Ton Stewardship dieser faszinierenden und gast Haus und Hof weiter, wie es in das nächste Kapitel seiner langen Geschichte bewegt, nicht nur als Museum, sondern als Wohnhaus, Gärten und Anwesen.

The Godinton Charitable Trust (GCT) was set up in 1974 by the late Alan Wyndham Green, who inherited Godinton House and Estate in 1952. The Trust was founded with generous gifts of land in 1974, 1986 und 1989. This land was required for development by Ashford Borough Council and Mr Wyndham Green wanted the proceeds for charitable purposes.
When Alan Wyndham Green died in 1996 the Charitable Trust provided funding for the renovation of Godinton House, Gardens and

Immobilien.
The charity is a privately funded grant-making charity. Trustees have discretion as to the application of its income or capital for charitable objects or purposes, it was always the intention of the Settlor to provide long-term endowment and continued support if necessary for its associated charity, The Godinton House Preservation Trust.
