History

Matilda Staunton Craig

Established as a family foundation in 1937, Staunton Farm Foundation exists thanks to the wishes of Matilda Staunton Craig (known as Aunt Daisie), who wanted her estate to be used to benefit people with mental illness. Following the direction set in her will and in response to current needs, Staunton Farm Foundation Trustees make grants to support treatment, services, and systems improvements for children, youth, and adults with behavioral health issues.
