The Chartered Institute of Marketing Benevolent Fund (CIMBF) exists to offer support and advice to CIM members (past and present) and their dependants when misfortune befalls them. This support, encouragement and advice may be in collaboration with others such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, or SSAFA, or other occupational charities and covers a wide range of areas of need.
This list is not intended to be exhaustive.
The Trustees work on a one-to-one basis with applicants, keeping in touch to ensure that any support provided has fulfilled its intended purpose.
The Chartered Institute of Marketing Benevolent Fund (CIMBF) was
established in 1921 as an independent Charitable Trust. In 1964 a Trust
Deed was created when the Institute of Marketing and Sales Management
appointed four Trustees to be responsible for the monies and securities
transferred by the Institute into the newly formed Benevolent Fund. Its
purpose was set out quite clearly to help in the relief of poverty and
the advancement of education. Today, the CIMBF is managed by Trustees who oversee its affairs.
