We encourage all potential applicants to meet with the One Foundation team prior to submitting an application. This is to ensure that the application you are seeking funding for is eligible and fits the criteria of being awarded a One Foundation grant. The One Foundation maintain a new interest in small-scale “Grassroot” opportunities of between £5,000–£10,000.

Please note that we are unable to support the following:

  • Organisation’s which do not hold a not-for-profit status;
  • Individuals wishing to undertake Undergraduate degrees;
  • Retrospective funding for projects which have already taken place;
  • Schools or school committees (sports, musical, PTAs etc);
  • Organisations which receive more than 50% of their annual income from the Government of Jersey.

Grants are considered on the basis of falling into one of three categories:

  • Sport
  • Community
  • Culture

One of the core objectives of the One Foundation is to provide a funding platform for individuals and teams with identified potential. Part of the criteria for selection is a report submitted by the registered entity (governing representative for a sport or organisation on the Island) responsible for the individual or team. For example, all tennis players would liaise with the Jersey Tennis Association regarding their application.

The registered entity must be:

  • a non-profit making organisation relevant to the application
  • able to demonstrate the presence of a qualified management team structure
  • hold rules and regulations of conduct
  • registered and regulated in Jersey
  • if possible be recognised by a governing body
