The Marr Munning Trust

We are an independent grant making trust supporting charitable projects in the Indian Subcontinent, South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Marr-Munning Trust is looking for new trustees. To learn more download the recruitment pack here.

We wish to make a real difference to the lives of people in some of the poorest communities in the world.  We believe that the most long-lasting solutions are likely to be those rooted in the communities themselves.  We target our limited funds towards registered, independent charitable organisations / not for profit companies with an annual income of between £25,000 and £1m.  Most of the organisations we support have an annual income of much less than £1m.

The trust was founded in 1970 by Frank Harcourt-Munning to alleviate poverty and suffering in the developing world.
