Who we have supported
How do The Bosdet Foundation funds help the Island? The Bosdet Foundation’s aim is to see long-term benefits and positive changes in society, and the easiest and best way to do this is by working with families and their children. Projects that the Foundation is involved in need to have clear and measurable outcomes and a method to access the impact that it will have to individual lives and the community as a whole.
Since 1989, The Bosdet Foundation has quietly donated to the community without any reliance on the Jersey Government, legacies or donations. In 2008, when the self-catering accommodation was introduced at Les Ormes, the annual amount donated significantly improved. In 2017, over £300,000 has funded 21 charities and charitable events.
