Our goal at the JN Foundation is to represent the JN Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility mission.

We provide resources and support to engender the type of change that will develop a society that benefits us all. The Foundation operates both as a developmental and funding agency, through which we offer three main categories of grants that support projects and programmes, under the following themes:

  1. Financial Empowerment and Independence for all Jamaicans
  2. The formation and mobilisation of a highly skilled and educated workforce
  3. The promotion and retention of culture and traditions and
  4. Development of a Safe and Healthy Society

In addition, the Foundation is keen on funding high impact programmes that have a demonstrable capacity to be self-sustaining after the period of funding has elapsed.

The three categories of grants are:

  1. The Member Advisory Council (MAC) grants up to a maximum of JA $100,000
  2. The Small Grant Scheme funds up to a maximum of JA $500,000
  3. The Grant Fund provides larger grants in excess of JA $501,000
