J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust

The J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is a private foundation exempt from U.S. federal income taxation under Section 501(C)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. The Trust provides Scholarship Grants to community college and university students who reside within the geographic boundaries of the Trust.

The Trust occasionally gives Community Organization Project Grants to non-profit organizations that are Canadian registered charities or public educational institutions.

The J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is administered by its Trustee, the JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., through Private Foundation Services, New York, NY.

The local advisors who serve on the Trust’s Advisory Committee are: Andy Hare, Suzanne Brown, and Allyson McKinnon.

About the Trust

Jefferson Davis Shatford was born in Hubbards, on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, in 1862. As a teenager, he left Hubbards and began a successful career that included the establishment of Shatford Oil Company. In his later years, Mr. Shatford based his home in Daytona Beach, Florida, where he died on September 5, 1955. J.D. Shatford was returned to his Hubbards home where he was buried in Pine Hill Cemetery.

His will directed that “a granite block monument be erected at my grave inscribed only with my name, date of birth and date of death.” J.D. Shatford’s last will and testament, after providing bequests to family members and others, provided that:

My said Trustees shall use such an amount thereof as may be necessary in their absolute discretion, but not to exceed the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) to construct and install, as a memorial to Jefferson D. Davis, Florence Lesley Shatford, Ellen Mathilda Shatford and John Edward Shatford, a set of chimes in the old Protestant Episcopal Church at my birthplace, Hubbards, Halifax County, Nova Scotia. I prefer that such chimes be installed to ring automatically, if possible, and in this event, they shall be rung daily at twelve o’clock noon and six o’clock in the evening.

Any balance remaining, I direct my said Trustees to use, as herein provided, for the benefit of the people of Hubbards community, Halifax County, Nova Scotia, as a memorial to my mother, Ellen Mathilda Shatford, my father, John Edward Shatford, Florence Lesley Shatford and myself. The net income and principal of said fund shall be used by my said Trustees exclusively for religious, charitable or educational purposes including the proper care and necessary attention for the poor and indigent who are unable to care for themselves, the crippled and the blind or others suffering from misfortune and otherwise for the benefit of the people in the territory described or for the benefit of the community.

Mr. Shatford directed that his will and the dispositions of his property were to be construed and regulated by the laws of the State of New York and accordingly, directed that the validity and effect of such dispositions would be determined by such laws. At the Chambers of Surrogate Court, held in and for the County of New York, at the Hall of Records in the County of New York on March 19, 1957, The Honorable S. Samuel DiFalco, Surrogate determined the geographic boundaries within which the J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is permitted to assist residents and organizations through charitable and educational grants.

The J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is a private foundation exempt from U.S. federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. The J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is administered by its Trustee, the JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., through JPMorgan Private Foundation Services, New York, NY. The local advisors who serve on the Trust’s Advisory Committee are Andy Hare, Suzanne Brown, and Allyson McKinnon.

Project Grants

The Trust occasionally gives Community Organization Project Grants to non-profit organizations that are Canadian registered charities or public educational institutions. Organizations must be located within the geographic boundaries of the Trust. (Note: Project Grants are based on the availability of funds after scholarship grants are allocated and are given at the discretion of the Trustee.)

Trust Area

Now that all homes in Hubbards have a proper civic address, we require that all applicants provide the proper numbered street address to assist with the verification of the residency requirement. We recommend you verify that your current address is within the georgraphic boundaries of the J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust by contacting shatfordtrust@gmail.com with your full address.

You may consult the map below and/or download a high resolution PDF. You may also view a large detailed map available at the J.D. Shatford Memorial Public Library in Hubbards by requesting it from staff at the library information desk. If your address appears to be well within the designated boundaries you should still verify this with Trust’s Advisory Committee preferably by email or by letter.

If you are thinking of moving to the area or are in the process of purchasing a home in the area please be aware that realtors and land developers may advertise or promote properties as within the J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust when they are not. The geographic boundaries are very specific and were put in place long before many areas were populated.

We encourage you to make every effort to verify that properties you might be considering are within the geographic boundaries of the Trust before you finalize your purchase if that is an important consideration for you. Certainly any decision to purchase property in the area should not depend on assumptions about receipt of the J. D. Shatford Memorial Trust scholarship funding as the Trust’s guidelines may change over time. Please read the guidelines for eligibility carefully, especially those concerning how long you must reside in the area before applying for J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust scholarship funds.

Please be aware that real estate brokers and land developers do not have permission from the J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust to use the name of the organization in any advertising or promotional materials.
