Monmouth Schools’ Charitable Trust

The Monmouth Schools’ Charitable Trust has been established as a vehicle for future fundraising that is separate from the William Jones Foundation and gives an independent identity to the existing funds that have already been bequeathed, pledged or donated whilst reassuring potential donors and legators that all gifts are administered by those with a clear loyalty and close connection to the Monmouth Schools.

The Charitable Trust has been formed to cover all the schools in the Monmouth group but with individual, ring-fenced funds for separate school interest.  The diagram is an example of how this might operate in the future.

The Trustees will meet at least twice a year and will proactively support development and fundraising initiatives, led by the Development Director, at Monmouth School for Boys or Monmouth School for Girls.

An Annual Report on the activities of the Trust will be produced by the Development Office for circulation to the main constituent groups.  If you are an Old Monmothian you will automatically receive a copy.  Please contact the Development Office if you are interested (but are not an OM) in receiving the report.

Registered charity number: 1151698
