  • Advance the education of young people within rural areas.
  • Relieve poverty within rural areas.
  • Promote the benefit and social welfare of inhabitants of rural communities by associating together with the inhabitants and local authorities, voluntary and other organisations to advance education and leisure.
  • Advance the education of the public by means of research and dissemination of information in relation to agriculture.
  • Promote research into agricultural associated activities.
  • Advance the education of the public by means of research and dissemination of information in relation to insurance.

The Trust will focus on funding larger initiatives which would have significant impact on the rural community.
