The Trust was established by the founders of the company and has benefited from regular donations from liverymen and some substantial legacy gifts. Our fund now stands at over £2M.
Our charitable aims are:
- The relief of any necessitous person who is a member of the Company
- The relief and/or educational support of widows, orphans or dependents of a deceased member
- Scholarships and prizes to recognise those advancing the design and construction of scientific instruments
- Grants and donations to charitable organisations promoting education and training in the field of science and technology
Please note that we do not accept requests for general funding of studies but make awards based on recommendations of partner Universities and organisations who have specialisations in instrumentation.
