In a first for the Society, the Society has entered a philanthropic partnership with the Podmore Foundation. The Podmore Foundation was founded in 2007 by graduates of RMC and is actively supported by a number of graduates and Class and reunion groups.
The Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) agreed at the Annual General Meeting of the Society on 17 November 2016 details the commitment of the Society and the Foundation to cooperation and collaboration, and guarantees that the Society and the Foundation retain authority over, access to and control over their own funds and membership information. Shared efforts of the partnership will be based on shared purpose, transparency and agreement.
The Council of the Society sees the partnership has potential to increase the number of personal donations by members of the Society to the Podmore Foundation, allowing it to sustain and extend its work. It also has potential to attract interest and promote membership in the Society.
