The Aims of the Trust

The aim of the Shaftesbury Charitable Trust is to set up a fund which will provide for any charitable purpose directed wholly or mainly for the benefit of Shaftesbury. This will include helping maintain the historic fabric of Shaftesbury, providing amenities for the town, and also for helping individual residents in suitable cases.

The Future

The Trust is aiming to build its capital so that the interest earned each year will increase. This will enable more meaningful grants to help Shaftesbury residents and local organisations.

A Gift for Shaftesbury

If you give a donation now or leave a legacy to the Shaftesbury Charitable Trust the trustees will see it properly invested or paid out to a worthy cause.

It is hoped that through the generosity of ‘Shastonians’ and friends of Shaftesbury, a sizeable capital fund can be built up and interest generated expended annually on worthy causes in the Shaftesbury area.
