The JD Foundation
At the JD Group, we feel passionately about supporting the urban youth of today and giving back to those who need it most, both in our local communities and in the international territories in which we operate. Our main vehicle for doing this in the UK is the JD Foundation which aims to assist charities working with disadvantaged young people. Founded in 2015, The JD Foundation has been doing BIG things over the past 4 years – with even bigger things planned for 2020! Our mission is to support charities that work with disadvantaged young people in the UK, now supporting 16 charity partners. We aspire to be more than a funding body, aiming to support our charity partners to increase their longevity by building sustainable organisations.
