The RTPI Trust is a registered charity, independent from the RTPI. It exists to provide support to members of RTPI and their families who are in genuine financial hardship. This can include:
- "In kind" assistance, such as through advice, to help a member and their family through a crisis.
- Financial support in the form of grants for specific items of expenditure, which are regarded as needed to support the welfare of the member and their family.
- Grant aid to support research that provides a public benefit in the field of Town and Country Planning.
The Trust may also support individual students who are seeking a career in town planning but have barriers to undertaking the studies they need because of genuine financial problems. Please note, however, that the Trust only considers cases of extreme financial hardship; student debt generally is unfortunately part of the current experience for most students.
Can you help us?
A donation to the RTPI Trust would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to make a donation please consider doing so through Gift Aid by completing this form. You will then be automatically redirected to our donations page with our bank account details.
Gift Aid allows the Trust to claim tax relief on your donation meaning that for a basic rate taxpayer every £1 donated will attract another 25p from HM Revenue and Customs.
