Welcome

About

The J A Clark Charitable Trust was set up in 1971 by John Anthony Clark as a family charitable trust.

The objective of the JAC Trust is to use the Trust’s income to provide financial and other support to organisations and projects that help to make change for those in real need in the UK and the wider world.

The Trust gives grants to charities and other non-profit making organisations.  To maximise the impact of our grant-making we focus our funding on organisations that are effective, share our ambitions and whose projects are most aligned with our interests and passions.

2017-2022 Strategic Period

The Trustees have identified two areas they wish to support during the current strategic period:

a) Women’s Empowerment in Africa and Asia, 

b) Disadvantaged Youths in deprived areas of the UK, specifically East London and the North East.

From time to time the Trustees will review the Trust’s funding policy and areas of focus.  Any changes will be posted here.  The most recent changes were made in March 2017.

Women's Empowerment Programme

Our goal is the empowerment of extremely poor, deprived and marginalised women in Africa and Asia. The work we fund focuses on:
1. Women’s Economic Empowerment;
2. Women’s Rights, in particular the right to live free from violence, slavery and discrimination.

Youth Programme

Our focus is on mentoring vulnerable people who are not in education employment or training, and finding them routes to employment or education.

Other Funding

A proportion of the Trust's grant-making budget is reserved for a "Family Fund". The Trustees do not accept unsolicited applications. Rather, individual members of the JAC Family reach out to organisations they have personally identified and are keen to support.
