Jane's Trust

Important Announcement

Jane’s Trust was created through the beneficence of Jane Bancroft Cook, who died in 2002. Mrs. Cook was known in the communities where she lived as a down-to-earth woman who was generous to the core. The Trust continued in that spirit of generosity from its founding in 2003 until its last grants in 2021.

Since its inception, Jane’s Trust awarded over 1,000 grants totaling more than $150 million to nonprofit organizations in greater Boston, northern New England, and Florida focused on education, environment, health and welfare, and arts and culture. The average grant over that time was approximately $110,000, and grants were made to support operating, program, capital, and endowment needs.

Jane’s Trust was created with a finite charitable life span. The Trust made its last grants in 2021. The Trust will issue a final publication in 2022 that outlines the Trust’s grant history and honors the great work of its grantees. A listing of the last 5 years of the Trust’s grants is below.
