The Marketing Trust is an independent Charitable Trust created in 1978 by The Chartered Institute of Marketing with the objective of providing for the advancement of education, practical training and research into the art and science of marketing for the benefit of the public. The expression ‘marketing’ in this instance includes the creation, promotion, sale and distribution of

products and services. In 2013 the Trustees created a new Fund to broaden the research pool of marketing knowledge and make that freely available to the public. The Trust approached The Chartered Institute of Marketing to carry out the first project on the topical subject of Food Labelling, and will be undertaking a further two projects this autumn. As well as their own original research, the Trust is funding, in whole or in part, a number of projects with several British universities. The Marketing Trust also supports applications for the funding of training and development projects designed to raise the marketing competence of those engaged in promoting the work of charitable bodies, as well as some general marketing related education projects. In the last 15 years, the Marketing Trust has made Grants totalling around one million pounds.
