Our Initiatives

In addition to its support to students through scholarships, the FirstRock Foundation also partners with several charitable organizations in order to fulfil its mandate of helping persons in need, particularly Jamaica’s youth. The FirstRock Foundation recognizes that giving back to our community can take many forms and therefore partners with a range of organizations on various initiatives which tackle social issues from a variety of angles. Past partnerships have included collaborations with Food for the Poor, Clarendon Crime Prevention, Hands of Grace Foundation, the Kiwanis Club and House of SDM.

The FirstRock Foundation takes pride in playing its part to create a better Jamaica one youth, household and community at a time. The Foundation’s past initiatives include support of beach clean ups, distribution of gift packages to the less fortunate as well as donation of useful learning tools such as tablets which will benefit students in need. The FirstRock Foundation welcomes future partnerships with philanthropic organizations and encourages them to reach out using the contact information provided about possible collaborations geared towards encouraging education and entrepreneurship.
