|Description:||Jane’s Trust makes grants in the areas of arts and culture, education, the environment, and health and welfare. The fund gives priority to programs that support disadvantaged communities and underserved populations. Within the areas of education, the fund supports programs that offer access to educational opportunities, resources, and programs for underserved communities; and that advance educational equality.
