Benevolent Fund receives £15,000 donation

We are pleased to announce that the Benevolent Fund has received a donation of £15,000 from Stuart Davison. We would like to thank Stuart immensely for this generous donation.

The funds will be used to provide ongoing support for members and the sector during this period.

The MA Benevolent Fund’s Covid Support Scheme is still open to applications. The scheme has been set up to offer grants of £500 to individual MA members whose finances have been significantly affected by the current pandemic.

It is open to individual members who have held membership for two or more years and can demonstrate a genuine and measurable need. 

We encourage applications to this funding stream. Assessments will be made on a case by case basis, and priority will be given to those in severe financial distress. See our Benevolent Fund page for more information on how to apply.

Funding appeal

Our appeal for donations to the Benevolent Fund to generate additional funds for the Covid Support Scheme is still open. All donations received will be allocated to the scheme and will be used to make further grants as above, until further notice.
