Areas of Focus
NCB gladly accepts its role and responsibility as a corporate citizen to provide opportunities that will chart a course for future generations who can lead wisely and participate in a meaningful way to Jamaica’s development.
The philanthropic arm of NCB Group, was formalized to fulfil the bank's philanthropic commitment as a leading socially responsible corporate citizen, actively building the communities in which it serves. Since inception in 2003, the Foundation has channelled over $1 Billion dollars to support development projects across Jamaica in the areas of:
- Youth Leadership and Entrepreneurship
- Community Development & Sports
The N.C.B. Foundation continues to invest in scholarships at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels and funds various educational programmes across the island. We focus on improving the physical conditions of schools so that students need a safe and healthy environment that is conducive to learning.
We, at the Foundation, believe that our young people have the power to become change agents within their schools, their communities and most importantly, in their own lives. Inspired by this belief, the N.C.B. Foundation supports programmes that develop the leadership skills in our youth and encourage active citizenship.
In an effort to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship among our youth, the N.C.B. Foundation has partnered with several skills-based projects. These projects have sought to enhance the skills of trainees through programmes in data entry, IT training and small cottage industry development.
Developing communities in which we serve remains at the heart of NCB's business driven focus. NCB, through the NCB Foundation, continues to find meaningful ways to touch and transform lives in communities across the length and breadth of our beautiful Island, Jamaica.
