Mission

The Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust was established by Marion Gardner Jackson, the granddaughter of local industrialist, Robert W. Gardner, founder of the Gardner-Denver Company. Before her death in 1976, Mrs. Jackson set up a perpetual trust to aid religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational organizations. Preference is given to organizations in Quincy, Illinois and surrounding communities in Adams County.

Guidelines

The application deadline for the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust is August 31. Applicants will be notified of the grant decisions no later than mid-December. In general, grant requests for individuals, endowment/capital campaigns or scholarships will not be considered. The majority of grants from the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable trust are 1 year in duration.

  • Capital Grants. Applicants may apply for a grant of up to $50,000 to support capital projects. The project must support the mission of the organization and/or the stated outcome of a program or project.
  • Program/Operating Support Grants. Applicants with organizational budgets of $10 million or less may apply for grants of $10,000 up to $50,000 for operating or program support. For program support grants, the yearly request may not be more than 30% of the program’s budget.

Organizations can submit 1 application per year and will not receive more than 1 award from the Trust in any given year. Any organizations receiving a multi-year award from the Trust that continues into the next grant year are not eligible to apply for an additional grant until the end of the grant cycle.
