Jane Cart Trust

The Jane Cart Trusts are two historic grant making charities based in Bedfordshire: Mrs Jane Cart’s Trust and Mrs Jane Cart’s Almshouse Trust. Both Trusts are administered by the Bedfordshire and Luton Community Foundation.

The main Trust focuses on providing support to Church of England Clergy and their dependants, where that member of the clergy has worked in the Diocese of St. Albans. The Almshouse Trust supports the housing costs of poor single women near Dunstable.

The Community Foundation manages the day-to-day operations of the Jane Cart’s Trust and provides all administrative support. All grants decisions are made by Jane Cart Trust trustees.
