Association of Men of Kent and Kentish Men

County Website

Join us and help make Kent a better place. And have fun - we do!

The Association has established two charities, both of which are administered by separate Trustees appointed by the Association's Management Committee:

  • The Association of Men of Kent & Kentish Men Eduational Charity (Reg. No. 309021), and
  • The Association of Men of Kent & Kentish Men Benevolent Fund (Reg. No. 216463).

Educational Charity

The objects of the Charity are to:

  1. Provide competition prizes to any school children resident in Kent, and
  2. Grant a bursary to any resident of Kent attending higher education.

The Trustees may, from time to time, organise a competition or may decide to offer prizes for a competition organised by others. In either case, the Tustees may specify the criteria to be used in judging such competition and/or the school children who may enter the competition. The Trustees may appoint judges for the competition or may act as judges.


In order to apply for a Bursary, a student must have been accepted for a College of Higher Education or a University, must complete and submit to the Secretary of the Association an application form by no later than 1 September, and must attach to the application form an essay of not more than 500 words entitled 'Why I should have this Bursary.'

All applications will be reviewed by the Trustees of the Charity, and applicants will be advised of their decision by 30 September.

Benevolent Fund

The Fund may provide financial support to those in need, either in the form of an annuity or as a one-off emergency payment.

An application for support from the Benevolent fund must be submitted to the Secretary of the Association and requires two sponsors, one of whom must be a Member of the Association. Each sponsor must be aware of the circumstances of the applicant and must be prepared to justify the provision of support, if requested.
