All funds raised by runners will be split equally between the 2019 local chosen charity the JSPCA and Standard Chartered’s own global initiative Futuremakers.
Futuremakers by Standard Chartered (“Futuremakers”), a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities, is the official global beneficiary* for the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon 2019.
Through Futuremakers programmes, we can make a difference in promoting economic inclusion and empowering our next generation to learn, earn and grow. Globally, more than 200 million young people are either unemployed, or they have jobs, but continue to live in poverty due to low income.  We believe everyone should have access to opportunities to realise their full potential so all money raised for Futuremakers from this year’s event will go toward education, employability and entrepreneurship programmes for disadvantaged young people around the world.

*£5 from each entry to the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon 2019 will be donated to Futuremakers by Standard Chartered and will support project implementation work of Women Win, a registered charity in the Netherlands under the name “Stitching Women Win, KvK 34267612.”
