The main activities of the charity are the operation of three independent schools, providing sheltered accommodation and nursing care through three care homes and running the Carer's Information Service. In addition, the charity provides bursaries and scholarships in excess of £5million a year.
Originally three separate buildings were built, The Hospital of Holy Trinity (now known as The Almshouses), The School House and Schoolmaster’s House. The latter two were demolished in 1897, leaving the Almshouses as the only remaining original building. The Whitgift Centre, a large shopping mall, now stands where the later Victorian school and surrounding buildings and sports fields were. These buildings were occupied in turn by Whitgift School, prior to its move to south Croydon in 1931, and then by Trinity School, prior to its move to Shirley Park.
The Whitgift Foundation runs three independent day schools:
- Whitgift School For boys aged 10–19 years
- Trinity School of John Whitgift For boys aged 10–19 years with a co-educational sixth form
- Old Palace of John Whitgift School incorporating Old Palace Nursery a co-educational Day Nursery for both boys and girls up to 4 years and Old Palace of John Whitgift School for girls aged 4 to 19 years.
