Trustees of the Public Trusts


The Trustees of Public Trusts administer trust funds belonging to the town. Occasionally they meet with other town agencies, civic organizations, and individuals to decide on the distribution of accumulated monies.

The committee comprises people who have legal training and experience, investment experience, and experience with the use and disbursement of funds.

Creating or Donating to a Trust

The Trustees of Public Trusts make giving easy and attractive, and make it easy to be philanthropic.

Establishing a fund in the Trust is a simple, quick and economical procedure. The Trustees take care of all the necessary paperwork at no cost.

Any person or organization may create a named trust with a minimum gift of $10,000. Additions may also be made to any existing trust at any time. The Trustees can accept a wide variety of assets and can accommodate a donor's financial and estate planning objectives.
