The Gibraltar Heritage Trust is a non-profit charity established by statute in 1989 to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.
The Trust collaborates with the Government of Gibraltar and with private organisations and individuals to preserve and promote Gibraltar's heritage for cultural, educational and tourism purposes. The Trusts project are funded largely through donations and an annual membership scheme. Its staff complement is funded by way of grant received annually from the Government. The Trust lobbies for the maintenance of historically important buildings and structures, and gives advice on their preservation and restoration as a statutory member of the Development and Planning Commission. With Gibraltar's long history as a garrison town and naval base, most of the listed structures are military, including defensive walls, bastions and batteries. However, the Trust also covers natural attractions and civilian structures such as caves and churches.
The Trust operates out of its offices at The Main Guard, an 18th Century guard house in John Mackintosh Square. It provides for a gift shop and bookshop that specialises in Gibraltar related publications and souvenirs.
