THE JD FOUNDATION

The mission of the JD Foundation is to support charities working with disadvantaged young people in the UK. The JD Foundation (The Foundation) supported 18 charities in 2020 with a focus on mental health and homelessness. The JD Foundation is a registered charity, founded by JD Group in October 2015. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the iconic JD Duffle Bag and other carrier bags in England, Wales and Scotland are transferred to the JD Foundation. In the period from October 2015 to January 2021, the JD Foundation has raised over £3.5 million, with 89% of funds received to date donated to our charity partners. All monies raised (excluding fees) are distributed amongst the chosen charity partners, with a small reserve left for emergency funding. The Foundation is committed to distributing 100% of all monies raised, less direct expenses with any residual amounts over committed to the principal partners retained for emergency funding.
