Summary

The Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) is an independent philanthropic charity, established in May 2020, to initially distribute £2m from the Dormant Bank Account Funds to assist charities supporting the community of Jersey during Covid-19 and its aftermath. In addition to this, JCF were awarded 50% of the 2019 lottery profits to distribute to Arts, Culture, Heritage, Science and Sport organisations on the Island, and also provide a grant-making platform to individual donors, charitable trusts and local businesses who want to support their local community and voluntary groups.

Due to the early stage of the Foundation’s existence we are currently a board of 2 directors plus two Co-Chairs (Nick Kershaw and Heather MacCallum). We are seeking 2 - 4 new independent board members to join the board of the Foundation.

The principal business of the board is the ongoing strategy of the Foundation, along with management and operational matters of the Foundation. In addition, members of the board meet approximately 6 times per year to evaluate and, where appropriate, approve funding applications received in respect of its funding programmes.

This role is unpaid.
