Application Guidelines

Each application is treated strictly on its own merit and, so long as it complies with MMT’s objectives, is considered by Trustees at their quarterly meetings, normally March, June, September and December. Notification of the outcome of each application is given after each meeting. Grants or donations tend to range between £500 and £10,000.
