What is the Junius S, Morgan Benevolent Fund?

The Junius S. Morgan Benevolent Fund (the Fund) makes charitable grants to members of the nursing profession who are in hardship for a variety of reasons. The Fund was established in 1890 by policyholders of The Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses in memory of one of its founders, Mr Junius Spencer Morgan.  Since its inception it has made thousands of small grants to nurses, former nurses and nursing auxiliaries, on many occasions being the catalyst needed to help them turn their lives around.

The information we collect

The Fund will only collect personal information from you where it has a legitimate reason to do so and/or you give your explicit consent.  When you apply for a grant from the Fund, we will collect information about you so that we can contact you about your application and any grant we make.  

How we use your information

The Fund will use the personal information we collect to assess your grant application and contact you in relation to it or any grant that we make.   We will not use your personal information for any other purpose without first seeking your consent, unless we are required to do so by law. 

Your personal information will be held, only for as long as it is required for our grant-making processes or as long as the law requires.

Confidentiality

Your personal information will be kept strictly confidential.  We will not share it with any third-party organisations or individuals.  Your personal information will not be sold, given away or shared with anyone else, unless we’re required to do so by law.
