Welcome to St John’s Hospital Educational Foundation website

We are one of Exeter’s oldest charities established around 1220.

We make educational grants, in three main areas:

  • Individuals who are in education in Exeter and in need of financial assistance
  • Church of England schools within The City of Exeter
  • Funding for bursaries at Exeter and The Maynard schools

The Foundation (or Trust) is run by a board of 12 Governors who are appointed by Devon County Council or Co-opted by the board of Governors of St John`s and The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Exeter is an Ex Officio Governor. We administer an endowment fund which produces income from which grants are made.

The Foundation also appoints Governors to the governing boards of Exeter School, the Maynard School and other charities.
