The Archbishop Desmond Tutu Intellectual Property Trust – incorporating the Office of Archbishop Tutu – is the guardian, repository and custodian of intellectual property and intellectual property rights associated with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Mrs Nomalizo Leah Tutu, and their legacy.
With partner organisations in the non-profit and academic sectors, it is building a world map of Tutu-related information and materials. When complete, the collection will be an invaluable resource for scholarly pursuit, and for the maintenance of the Archbishop’s wisdom in public thought, for posterity.
Trustees include celebrated South Africans who have remained faithful to the Archbishop’s mission for decades.
Archbishop Tutu has retired from public life but his mission for humanity, compassion and justice continues. Managing the Archbishop’s Office, managing correspondence on the Founder’s behalf, and maintaining old (and new) relationships are key function of the Tutu IP Trust. The Office is the official gateway between the Arch and Mrs Tutu, and the world.
The Archbishop Desmond Tutu Intellectual Property Trust (or Tutu Trust) is a registered Trust established at the request of Archbishop and Mrs Tutu in November 2019 to act as legal guardian and custodian of their intellectual property rights and legacy.
