Background and Ethos of The Charity
John Mathews left his estate in Trust in his Will on 27 October 1630 so that young people should be able to nurture their talents and overcome financial barriers that may stand in their way. Today the charity of John Mathews follows the same ethos and encourages applications from young people seeking to build upon their talents and improve their educational and career prospects.
The Charity has supported musicians, actors, journalists, tree surgeons and medical students, to name just a few, to assist with purchasing specialist equipment or specialist course fees. Please read carefully the application requirements, and feel free to contact us. As a guideline the Trustees normally meet twice a year in around May and November, when applications are considered, although meetings may be held more frequently if the volume of applications merit it.
