About Us

The Jersey Community Foundation is an independent philanthropic charity established in 2020. We provide a grant-making platform to individual donors, charitable trusts and local businesses who want to support their local community and voluntary groups.

We work in partnership with our donors to provide an expert service to ensure that their giving goes to worthwhile causes in the areas they are passionate about. Some of the benefits of our service include detailed due diligence checks on applicants, assessment of applications, strong knowledge of needs across Jersey and the community groups within it, monitoring and evaluation of projects supported and impact reports.

Making a difference to your local community through charitable giving should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone involved. In Jersey there are over 500 charitable organisations to choose from and it can be difficult to find the time and expertise to approach giving efficiently. Knowing that your money is going to the right place, and dealing with the day-to-day hassles of on-going administration can be daunting.

The Jersey Community Foundation 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.

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.
