[/frame]Set up in 1939, the Fund aims to relieve cases of indigence or distress among all classes of Members of the Institute and dependants of deceased Members of the Institute in whatever class.
The Trustees may be able to offer grants, interest-free loans and interest-bearing loans depending on the nature of the claim. Beneficiaries must remain members of the Institute while loans are outstanding.
