Partnership Guidelines

The JPS Foundation will give priority to individuals, groups and institutions whose projects or activities are of a charitable nature and can have lasting, sustainable impact at the local/community levels and/or on a national scale.
Requests for financial assistance or partnership support from the Foundation must be aligned with the Foundation’s funding strategy and core areas of concentration as named above.

We know needs are great but we have committed to supporting projects in the areas outlined above. We often receive requests for several common areas that are presently not in the scope of our commitments, which we do not fund. These include, but are not limited to:
1. Political Campaigns and Projects
2. Personal or business needs
3. Loans and investments
4. Salaries and Administrative Costs
5. Overseas Travel

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

Applications for partnerships must be from properly registered groups or institutions. The online donation request form must be completed when applying for assistance or support. Additionally, a Proposal Letter must be sent to jpsfoundation@jpsco.com:

Please clearly state how there is a strategic fit between your work/cause/project and the Foundation’s ongoing work. Proposals must include in 150 words or less.
• Contact information for the organisation/project.
• Brief description of the purpose of the organisation/project and the challenges it intends to address.
• Detailed stimated project budget and time frame.
Emailed proposals will be acknowledged within 48 hours of receipt, however, the online form must also be completed to facilitate evaluation. Results of evaluated applications will be shared via email within 10 working days of completion.
