Administrative history

The J.D. Shatford Memorial Trust is a private foundation that helps young residents of Hubbards, Nova Scotia, with post-secondary education costs. The trust was created by oil magnate Jefferson Davis Shatford, who was born in Hubbards in 1862 and is buried in Hubbards' Pine Hill Cemetery. All high school graduates residing in Hubbards are eligible to receive post-secondary bursaries from the trust. Funds from the trust also built the J.D. Shatford Memorial Library and the Hubbards firehall, and supplied funding to churches and other community facilities.
