The mission of the JCK Industry Fund is to support the jewelry industry’s long-term success and growth by providing grant funding to impactful organizations with the vision and programming to drive sustainable improvements across the industry.
Since its inception in 1997, the JCK Industry Fund has awarded over $7 million toward program grants to support the health and success of the jewelry industry at large. In 2023, the JCK Industry Fund’s grants have exceeded the previous year’s awards with over $300,000 in grants awarded. Nine deserving organizations, each dedicated to various causes such as security, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), cultivating a sustainable industry workforce, ensuring environmental preservation, and upholding product quality were successful in securing these grants.
The JCK Industry Fund’s Advisory Committee is made up of passionate, senior leaders from JCK and various categories within the industry.
