The Mission of the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust is to honor the creative and philanthropic legacy of Edward Gorey through preservation and promotion of his literary and artistic works and support of the animal welfare causes to which he was devoted.

Edward Gorey created the Trust in his will, designating it as the sole owner of his intellectual property and charging it to benefit organizations “whose primary purpose is the welfare of animals.” The Trust pursues its mission by licensing Mr. Gorey’s intellectual property, lending his work to museums and other exhibitors, and issuing grants for animal rescue, care, and conservation. In 2019, the Trust began new efforts to organize Mr. Gorey’s archive for the use of researchers and educators and to expand the reach of his work through collaborations with artists, designers, non-profit organizations, and others.
