The Jersey Community Foundation’s Environment Fund is now open for applications.
The Jersey Community Foundation (JCF) is a philanthropic charity, established in 2020 to connect people who care, with causes that matter, inspiring local giving for local needs.
The JCF works with donors who want to give something back to their local community and voluntary groups providing vital services for local people and disadvantaged individuals.
The 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.
This fund is aimed at organisations wishing to engage in projects that benefit the environment and our local community, which in turn contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and work towards Jersey’s Climate Neutral Strategy.
The Environment fund may be allocated across a few initiatives or if there is one entry which will deliver significant impact, a larger grant may be given.
