Johnston H. (“Jack”) Wilcox established a Charitable Trust in 1980 for the benefit of his hometown, Plymouth, Michigan and the greater Plymouth Community. The Trust today has become The Wilcox Foundation, a non-profit corporation.
Jack wanted his assets to be invested wisely in the community:
> To make community based grants with impact.
> To connect grant making and community betterment.
> To capitalize on co-funding and partnering opportunities.
> To promote good works and projects that create lasting benefits or
provide an ongoing return to the Plymouth community.
Jack's wish was that his assets should play a meaningful part in making the Plymouth Community a better place.
The Wilcox Foundation has donated a new Fountain to the City of Plymouth that is located in Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth.
Dedicated on October 16, 2021, the Fountain will become a Plymouth landmark and is a charitable investment that promotes Jack's vision of creating long term benefits for the Plymouth community and of making Plymouth a better place.
