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.

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.

We do not accept unsolicited applications for funding, however, to be added to our database of charities and not-for-profits you can submit an organisational profile. This database will be used to identify potential future grantees.

We receive large numbers of profiles so, in order to process them and contact shortlisted organisations, we only accept submissions for three months each year.

Online submissions will reopen on the 1st April 2025.
