The Duncan-Jenkins Trust
The Duncan-Jenkins Trust was created and endowed in 2001 by the last will and testament of Sarah E. Jenkins of East Washington, New Hampshire. The purpose of the trust is to benefit the schools, staff and graduates of Washington and Hillsboro-Deering School Districts by adding enrichment above and beyond what taxpayers are expected to finance.
The will states: "It is not my intention to . . . fund programs that would be otherwise funded from taxpayer dollars."
