About Us

The Jersey Community Foundation is a philanthropic charity established in 2020 to connect people who care with causes that matter, inspiring local giving for local needs. We work with donors who want to give something back to their local community and voluntary groups providing vital services for local people and disadvantaged individuals.

JCF helps generous individuals, families, organisations, trusts and foundations establish their own charitable fund with the Foundation, to support the causes that mean the most to them in the Channel Island of Jersey.

Community Foundations are one of the fastest-growing philanthropic movements globally. They are established, trusted charities that support local communities focusing on the most pressing needs in an area and are committed to making a difference to people’s lives in the places they serve.

History of Jersey Community Foundation

Established in May 2020, the initial remit of the Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) was to distribute £2 million from Jersey Dormant Bank Accounts to assist charities supporting the community of Jersey during Covid-19 and its aftermath.

We are extremely grateful to the Government of Jersey who have generously supported the Foundation with funding from Dormant Bank Accounts.
