The FJG Foundation
The idea behind FJG Foundation is simple. By raising money throughout the year with sponsored events and fundraising initiatives, the FJG Foundation can support and make a positive difference to more worthy causes than ever before. All of the money raised by the FJG Foundation will go back to the communities in which we operate.
To start with, please take some time to read through our objectives; as this this will give you an idea of who we would like to help, and why. If you would like to apply for a small grant (typically between £250-£500), first make sure you meet the application criteria, and then follow the procedures outlined on the ‘apply’ for funding tab.
If you would like to see who has donated, or if you would like to read about some of the fund-raising activities that we will be involved in, then please take a look at the tabs across the top of this page. The tabs above will also give you some information about the FJG Foundation Trustees, the objectives of the Foundation; and how you can donate too.
We are fully registered with the UK Charities Commission. Our registration number is: #1153469.
