Sixty-six percent of Tata Sons is owned by philanthropic trusts founded over 120 years ago.

“At the Rockefeller Foundation, we are constantly searching for innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges, and we have admired Mr. Tata’s work in both the corporate sector and in his personal philanthropy to find these types of solutions as well,” said Dr. Judith Rodin, President of The Rockefeller Foundation. “We are honored to celebrate Mr. Tata tonight for his vision, the Tata group’s leadership, his commitment to innovation in the area of corporate social responsibility and for his commitment to the poor and underserved.”
