Clearly setting out project outcomes
The Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) was created to support projects that make a difference to the local Jersey community and we measure this through achievement of defined project outcomes.
If your project outcomes aren’t clear, can’t be described or do not align with one or more the five Heritage Outcomes listed below, we will be unable to support your project.
Five Heritage outcomes
Specifically, JCF supports projects with outcomes that align with the Heritage Strategy for Jersey; contributing to the Island’s unique identity, beautiful environment, vibrant community, and sustainable economy, creating a better place to live for everyone, now and in the future. These outcomes are:
Although some funded projects will achieve only one outcome, others might achieve more than one. However, we strongly encourage you not to claim more outcomes than you really think you can realistically deliver.
1. Diversity and Inclusion Heritage services are available to and equally used by all. In a suc...
In a successful project this mandatory outcome will be achieved if the range of people involved in heritage is more diverse than before your project started. You can achieve this through wider public engagement, increased skills, fresh sources of expertise and advice and working in partnership to share services, people and resources.
To demonstrate this outcome, you will need to include audience development work and community consultation in your planning. You will be asked specifically in your application how you will monitor this to show how your audience, participant, volunteer or worker profile has changed between the start and end of the project.
This may include, for example, diversification of age groups, ethnicities and social backgrounds, more disabled people, or groups who have never engaged with your heritage before.
Everyone has a chance to access and experience heritage
If your project is a success it will be easier for people to experience heritage through better presentation, better interpretation, better facilities or better access, whether physical or digital.
Knowledge of heritage is grown and shared through research
If your project is a success it will be possible to demonstrate new knowledge about Jersey’s geological, natural and cultural heritage, improved access to records, images and research. It could improve understanding of how Jersey’s heritage is unique, and where it fits,
in an international context.
The significance of heritage is recognised and celebrated
If your project is a success, then individuals will have developed their understanding of heritage because you’ve provided them with opportunities to learn about stories, celebrate places or commemorate events that are part of our diverse Island identity
Heritage assets are protected and utilised for optimum public benefit
If your project is a success, then there will be improvements to the physical state of heritage. These improvements might be the result of repair, renovation or work to prevent further deterioration.

Examples of Supported Disciplines
Heritage can be anything from the past that you value and wish to pass on to future generations.
A project might sit definitively within one of the supported disciplines below, across a few of them or could include another heritage discipline.
The Jersey Community Foundation works with Advisers, with sector specific expertise, to support the Foundation in reviewing applications. Jersey Heritage will be supporting the Foundation in reviewing the Heritage lottery applications, as well as supporting the Foundation in promoting the availability of the funds. If you would like advice on your application before you apply or during the application process, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
As Jersey Heritage are supporting the Foundation in reviewing applications, they will not be applying for lottery funding.
Where appropriate, we expect applicants to consider what steps they can take to create positive environmental impacts and reduce negative environmental impacts through their projects. The measures that you implement should be appropriate for the scale of your project.
