The Marr-Munning Trust is an independent grant making trust supporting charitable projects in the Indian Subcontinent, South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.





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 / NGOs 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.

We make grants totalling approximately £360,000 each year to charitable organisations/NGOs.  We do not make grants to individuals.

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