Who are JCF?

The Jersey Community Foundation is a philanthropic charity, whose aim is to bring together local donors and those acting to provide positive solutions in our communities for local people. We work with individuals, families, businesses and trusts who want to make a real and lasting difference to their local community in a way that works best for them. 

Our donor advised funds provide donors with a flexible and convenient service, using our experience to connect them with inspiring local projects and charitable organisations within the community.  Donors can choose how involved they get, knowing that our team will manage their day to day grant-making and due diligence.
