After a bit of a boost? My trust funds could come in handy

HomeAboutTrust funds

Trust fund support

Gaddum looks after a number of historical trust funds. These are available to provide financial support to people of all ages and from very different walks of life.

Each year a limited amount of funding is made available, so difficult decisions to allocate funding are made either by Mynshull’s, the Gaddum Trustee Board, or individual trust fund Trustees. Each of the funds describes the people they are there to help, and you can apply using the contact details at the end of this page.

Trust funds available

Mynshull’s Educational Foundation

The Foundation supports children and young adults up to the age of 25 from a disadvantaged background to purchase books, equipment and uniforms to enable them to continue their education or apprenticeship. The student and the family they live with must live in the City of Manchester or the surrounding boroughs such as the ‘old city of Salford’.

The Foundation also provides grants to secondary schools/ six form college to enable its pupils who are receiving free school meals to participate in essential field trips which their parents do not have the capacity to fund.
