The Munster Trust, a registered UK charity, receives no public funding. Its ability to help support young musicians since 1958 has been thanks in large part to the endowments bequeathed by Lady Munster during her lifetime and in her will. Through careful management, the value of the Trust’s portfolio of investments has appreciated considerably, and the Trust has been very grateful to receive a number of donations over the years, not least a generous gift from the Derek Butler Trust in 2013. However, with rises in the cost of education and low investment returns, the Trust’s resources have come under increasing pressure.
To help the Trust continue its valuable work, please consider making a donation to the Trust or leaving a bequest in your will. If you would like to make a donation specifically to the Neil Black Award, please go to Neil Black Award.
