For more than 50 years, the Trust has not had recourse to fundraising. However, with increases in educational costs and low investment returns, its reserves are coming under pressure and, in order to maintain the efficacy of the Trust’s work, the Trustees feel that they should tell people about the importance of its work.

The Trust is unique in the provision of independent resources and expertise in identifying and helping those with the greatest talent and need. Maintaining the support the Trust has provided for more than 50 years is critical to the future of the musical life of this country’s own young talent. The spirit which Lady Munster inspired still survives and the strong sense of her original concept renews itself in all who become involved with the Trust.
