Welcome to the James Marshall Foundation

In 1722 a local land owner, James Marshall, left a remarkable gift in his Will. He created a charity that would support young people, living in the Parishes of Wheathampstead and Harpenden to obtain employment.

We have now extended our catchment area to include:

  • Kimpton
  • Redbourn
  • Flamstead
  • Markyate


Founded 300 years ago, we work closely with local schools, youth organisations and families to provide funding for education and career development opportunities for under 25’s. We want to provide opportunities to develop skills and fulfil potential.
