Nomad Trust receives $3.5k grant from international foundation

Generous donation: An international organisation has donated thousands to a homelessness charity in Lincoln.

The Nomad Trust in Lincoln has been awarded a $3,500 grant as part of the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation’s (MDRT) Quality of Life Grant Program.

The grant will help to improve the facilities so that the volunteers of The Nomad Trust can offer breakfast and an evening meal ‘on site’, as well as offering support during the day in order to ‘signpost’ individuals to other organisations to enable them to access the help that they need to address any inherent difficulties in addition to offering housing solutions.

Representing the MDRT, Terence P. O’Halloran, a Chartered Financial Planner, presented the grant to Brenda Shiels of the Nomad Trust on June 25 at the initiation of work on the new facilities.

Terence has been a supporter of the Nomad Trust for many years both personally and also through Bailgate Rotary Club.

Created in 1959, MDRT is an international, independent association of nearly 36,000 of the world’s best life insurance and financial services professionals from more than 78 countries.

Through its Worldwide Grant Program MDRT is committed to improving the quality of life in communities around the globe.

Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than $28 million in more than 70 countries throughout the world and in all 50 U.S. states, with the majority of these funds being raised by MDRT members.

This year, the MDRT Foundation will award almost $1 million in grants to more than 100 charities.
