The Foundation fund was created by inviting current and former JCI members, JCI Senators and other individuals to become members of the Foundation. This requires a minimum contribution of £500. The income from our fund is available for applications from JCI UK and the local chambers. The Foundation has over 100 members.
The interest accrued on the invested capital is available:
- To help contribute to the funding of new chamber launches
- To help sustain recently launched chambers
- To help existing chambers to grow
- To co-fund events which have as a clear objective membership growth
There is another area of activity for which grants will be made, and that is for defraying capital costs incurred by national, regional, or local organisations in the course of maintaining or extending their infrastructures or systems. It was under this provision that in 2010 and 2017 the Foundation supported the creation of the new JCI UK website.
