The DM Trust has been established from the merger of the DM Foundation and IDM Trust to serve the whole direct, digital and data marketing industry. The main function of the Trust is to distribute funds in support of projects and activities which contribute to the future growth and governance of the data driven marketing sector.

The Trust is a charitable organisation and is financially independent. It has been set up with gifts and legacies but now actively fundraises to ensure the industry and consumers continue to benefit.

The DM Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees which is responsible for assessing applications for funds and ensuring that grants are effective in providing benefit for one-to-one marketing businesses.

Applications will be accepted from organisations, educational establishments and groups of individuals.
