THE MARKETORS’ TRUST
The Trust was formed to provide and encourage education in marketing, with special reference to the City of London. It grants recognition of education achievements and provides assistance to persons undertaking advanced educational courses relating to marketing.
The Trust has a continuing programme of support by way of donations to selected charities. These include St Bride’s Church (associated with the Company), charities supported by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, those connected with the Corporation of the City of London and relief of Liverymen and Freemen in need.
The Trust has established links with a wide range of universities, colleges of higher education and schools, mainly in the City of London and Greater London areas. Each year it reviews a range of existing and potential awards to students undertaking studies associated with marketing.
There is also one restricted Fund: the Mais Marketing Award which provides funding for an educational award.
Trustees are recruited from the membership of the Worshipful Company of Marketors, three of whom, the Master, the Senior Warden and Middle Warden are appointed by virtue of their election as officers of the Company. The Chairman of the Trustees is elected by the Master and Wardens.
