1. What are my chances of success?
Because the Trust is wholly discretionary, it is not possible to give applicants a view on whether a particular application is likely to be successful or not. The Trust's representatives are not trustees, so can express no view.
2. Would the trustees like to be invited to fundraising or other events?
Whilst the trustees are interested to hear of events that are organised by beneficiaries of the Trust, it should be assumed that trustees will not attend such events, unless notification is received to the contrary. In order to avoid administrative costs, invitations requiring a response will therefore not receive one unless a trustee is proposing to attend. Invitations and information about events should be sent to The Tolkien Trust contact address.
3. Who deals with matters relating to J R R Tolkien's literary works, contracts and permissions?
The Trust cannot provide any information about these matters. Questions relating to J R R Tolkien's literary works, to the Tolkien copyrights and trade marks and to licences, contracts or other business matters are dealt with by the Tolkien Estate and its publishers, HarperCollins.
