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.
