The Keith Jones Foundation is an Isle of Man registered foundation, established by our chairman and philanthropist Keith Jones in 2019. It is a private, independent foundation which can make grants for any purposes. The Foundation is not a charity.
Mr. Jones is an experienced businessman, investor, and entrepreneur born in the UK. In 1984, he started and built up a specialist technology company into an international group and world leader employing over 500 people operating primarily in the automotive industry.
In 2017, he founded Tevir Group, a privately held investment group with a growing, diverse portfolio of interests in the Isle of Man, UK & Europe, and an emphasis on Grade A luxury real estate.
Throughout his career, Mr. Jones has generously given part of his wealth to help people and worthy causes and wishes to continue to do so via his Foundation. To date, over £2.5million has been donated to various organisations in a bid to benefit those in need and aid the community.
One of our objectives is to provide a positive economic and social impact to individuals and communities in locations where the founder has a personal or business presence.
By collaboratively working together, we are passionate about providing impactful financial support to individuals, organizations, and charities that are committed to making a difference and may have limited visibility.
Whilst some projects provide short-term benefits, we are also keen to build a lasting legacy in the communities and initiatives that we are supporting by providing funding for longer-term projects to secure a longer-term impact on those in need.
Applications for grants are considered, but not limited to, the following areas:
The categories above are not intended to limit the interest of the Foundation from considering other worthwhile projects. In general, the Foundation guidelines are broad to give us flexibility in providing funding to worthy causes. As we are not a charity, the causes we can consider do not need to be charitable.
Over £2.5million has already been donated to non-profit organisations and initiatives across the Isle of Man and Portugal.
Donations are made after an extensive review of the application by the council members and the Founder himself, Keith Jones.
The Keith Jones Foundation application form is available online and in PDF.
All applications will be reviewed by the Board at their quarterly meetings. Prospective applicants are notified of the Board’s decision and if successful, funding will be discussed.
