The James Marshall Foundation

In 1722 a local man, James Marshall, left a remarkable gift in his Will. He created a charity that would support young people, living in the Parish of Wheathampstead and Harpenden, to achieve their dreams. James Marshall's legacy lives on to this day.

If you are aged under 25 and live in Harpenden or Wheathampstead you can apply to the foundation for funding to support you at school, college, university, through an apprenticeship or with your career.

James Marshall could have never imagined that, in the past six years, the Trustees have awarded grants in excess of £1,000,000.
