The William Jackson Trust was established under the Will of Mr William Jackson (d.1915) which stated

“… And as to my four freehold shops and premises [these] shall be sold and the net proceeds of such sale paid to the Vicar and Churchwardens for the time being of the Church of St. Mary East Barnet aforesaid (whose receipt shall be a sufficient discharge to my Trustees for the same ) Upon trust that such Vicar and Churchwardens shall invest the same in or upon authorised trust securities and shall from time to time apply the dividends interest and income to be derived from such investments in such shares and in such manner in  all respects as they in their absolute discretion shall think fit for the benefit of such poor widows (of whatever religious denomination) of the age of sixty years and upwards as shall for the time being be living in the Parish of East Barnet aforesaid and as shall have resided within such parish for a period of at least twenty years previously as the said Vicar and Churchwardens shall select.”

The Trust’s current objects are the relief of poverty in the ecclesiastical parish of East Barnet and its environs.

The trustees are not currently taking applications for grants, but hope to soon be able to do so.
