Job Details

James Marshall Foundation (JMF) is a long-established charity that celebrated its 300th Anniversary in 2022. Land and property were bequeathed by a local landowner, James Marshall, in 1722 and our available funding is the income generated from those assets. JMF does not actively fundraise. JMF is a community charity that has considerable local impact and in 2022, we awarded over £300,000 of grant funding, providing over 1,000 grants to help young people.

Potential beneficiaries must live in Harpenden, Wheathampstead, Kimpton, Redbourn, Flamstead & Markyate and our Trustees must also live in one of these locations.

We are looking for up to three new Trustees to join the team, people who can volunteer some of their energy, time and skills to continue this legacy to help young people. The most important attribute we seek from our Trustees is a strong desire to work with others and contribute towards the help that JMF provides in the local community.




The James Marshall Foundation was established nearly 300 years ago when James Marshall left property in his Will that he wanted to go towards helping children and young people from Harpenden and Wheathampstead, from families of limited means, in preparing them for work, or establishing themselves in a career. The key age group he was primarily concerned about was 16 – 24 year olds but he determined that if there were sufficient funds, financial assistance could be given to younger children.

The Foundation has thus been operating for a long time and has the same overall remit of assisting eligible young people in education and career-related activities. It does have sufficient funds for the foreseeable future to assist younger children as well as the target age group. Grants of over £1,000,000 have been awarded during the last six years.

The Foundation can only support young people and children living in Harpenden or Wheathampstead.
