The Buck Trust Legacy

Alcohol Justice's core funding is from the Leonard and Beryl Buck Foundation, commonly known as the Buck Trust. The Trust also funds the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, the Buck Institute for Education, and the Marin Community Foundation. The Trust was formed after Beryl Hamilton Buck passed away in 1975, leaving an amazing legacy dedicated “for the benefit of Marin Residents and all humankind.” Alcohol Justice is a supporting organization of the Marin Community Foundation, which administers the Buck Trust. Alcohol Justice receives one of the portions at approximately 3% of the annual return on the fund in perpetuity – for the benefit of anyone in any city, county or state, or the United States or globally.
