About The JMA Trust

The John Maurice Aitken (JMA) Trust has been developed in memory of a very special man who was loved by so many. John had a big personality and an even bigger heart – he thrived on supporting others to help spur them forward. The JMA Trust’s main aim is to echo John’s attitude, particularly focusing on the aspects of life close to his heart. You can find out more about John here.

Our primary purpose will be to provide support and advancement to those in need within the areas of health, education, employment, public participation in sport and with the relief of financial hardship.

In all, the JMA trust will endeavour to create positive opportunities for our beneficiaries by improving health and wellbeing, and by easing the burdens associated with hardship to help students achieve their aspirations.


We wouldn’t be able to help people without the amazing support of the JMA fundraisers.
