Welcome to our appeal donation page. The Government of Jersey has given every single person living in Jersey £100 to spend in the local economy as an economic stimulus. The Association of Jersey Charities, which represents all Registered Charities in Jersey, has launched this local Fundraising Appeal to match. We hope that once we, in Jersey, have all spent our £100 with local businesses, those of us that can afford to do so will also make a donation to local charities. Many have seen demand for their services rise, whilst many of their fundraising activities have been cancelled.
If you donate here, the AJC will use the money to make awards to charities operating in your chosen sector. Just select the sector (or sectors) you want to support, the amount you want to give and "donate". You don't need a PayPal account - just a credit or debit card (not your Spend Local card). For more information about the appeal and how it will work click here (FAQs).
If you want to donate to a particular charity, including the AJC itself, select the "Members" tab above or contact them directly.
If you are a Jersey tax-payer and your donation is for £50 or more, please complete an R10 form, so that we can reclaim the tax you have already paid on your donation and increase its value without costing you a penny more! Download the form at the foot of this page.
Arts, culture & heritage
These charities preserve and promote the Island’s heritage – from castles to Jerriais; encourage participation in and enjoyment of the visual and performing arts; bring music into schools and residential homes and provide encouragement to budding local artists and students.
Children, young people & families
These charities provide a wealth of opportunities, activities and support for children and young people from birth through adolescence to leaving school and starting work. They also support some of the island's most disadvantaged children, young people and families educationally, emotionally and financially.
These charities provide the widest range of services – running community events; keeping the streets of St Helier safe; supporting the most economically disadvantaged islanders; the homeless; the elderly; and providing search and rescue and first aid facilities.
Conservation, environment and animal welfare
These charities look after the birds and the bees – and the hedgehogs and the donkeys; undertake research to protect the local marine environment and provide educational resources to support local conservation efforts.
Physical & mental health and disability
These charities range from the smallest to the largest on the island encompassing self help groups to residential care homes and everything in between. They offer specialist services to islanders with a range of conditions and disabilities; and in the arena of mental health provide counselling and practical support.
If you donate here, your funds will be used to support charities in any sector where the AJC determines that financial need is greatest.
