JCI Foundation?Projects Around the Globe

Interest generated from the JCI Foundation is allocated to JCI?s Development Program, helping NOMs carry out important Junior Chamber projects.
During 2001, JCI provided financial assistance in the form of development grants to encourage growth by supporting specific projects and training events.

To achieve membership growth in Latvia and other Baltic NOMs by organizing JCI leadership training programs and an international PRIME ? To increase membership in Norway Honor Your Chapter President Through the JCI Foundation ************************************************ You can honor your chapter president through a donation to the JCI Foundation. The JCI Foundation Board of Directors adopted a plan at the 1996 JCI Congress in Pusan, Korea, allowing chapters to become Foundation patrons. Giving to the Foundation is an exceptional way to honor an outgoing chapter president or an outstanding member not yet eligible for a JCI Senatorship. Your chapter will receive a pin for every US$1,000 donation, and a special chapter plaque. A panel of honor at JCI Headquarters will display the names of the most generous chapters of the world. At area conferences and world congresses, the chapter president or the chapter's nominee will get a Foundation ribbon and an invitation to all Foundation events. Japan Junior Chamber has significantly led the way in chapter contributions to the Foundation, as 35 out of 42 donations have come from Japanese chapters. In 2001, once again, Japan Junior Chamber?s chapters and members contributed strongly, providing more than 50 percent of the total donated.
