JCI UK Foundation

The JCI UK Foundation was set up in 1995, with the aim of providing JCI UK with funding for events and projects that focus on membershipSupporting JCI UK » image.jpg growth. Since its formation the JCI UK Foundation has provided grants to over 25 chambers and Regional Groups in support of the activities and development of JCI.

The Foundation fund was created by inviting people to become members of the Foundation. This requires a minimum contribution of £500. These contributions   have been invested, and the proceeds made available to JCI UK and the local chambers for development projects. In 2010 the JCI UK Foundation had 114  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 the Foundation supported the creation of the new  JCI UK website.
