The Samuel Gardner Memorial Trust was set up in April 1970 following a bequest from Arthur Gardner who wished the Trust to be named in memory of his father Samuel, a prominent landowner and benefactor in the Harrow on the Hill area.
The objectives of the Trust are to apply trust assets towards:
• the advancement of music and musical education generally
• support for the arts and heritage
• the preservation of trees, gardens etc. to provide open spaces, public walks etc.
The trustees meet these objectives by giving grants to applicants whose objectives and activities match those of the charity.
