JCY actively contributes to the greater community by providing our expertise to selected non-profit organisations and community projects free of charge.
Below are a number of projects that demonstrate our commitment to philanthropy and our passion for improving the quality of life for all members of our community.
One of our Director’s Ian Hart participated in the 2017 Hawaiian Ride for Youth on March the 21st – 25th to raise awareness and funds for Youth Focus.
Youth Focus is an independent not for profit organisation that supports vulnerable young people in WA by offering a range of free mental health services. Over 180 cyclists took part in the ride covering approximately 700kms over the 5 days from Albany to Perth. The training for the ride included getting up at 5am, 3 mornings a week over a 6 month period, with each rider averaging over 7,500km in training alone!
We are proud to announce that the ride itself raised over $2,500,000 for Youth Focus which was a mammoth effort. Congratulations Ian and all those who participated and donated to this very worth cause.
Ian has already told us he will be doing it all again in 2018!
JCY were also proud to sponsor one of the participating yachts in the 2015 Charity Twilight Sail for the Hawaiian Ride for Youth.
JCY donated graphic design services to produce a series of materials designed to assist regional communities in learning about nutrition and growing their own fruit and vegetables. This included a food wheel / calendar, food datasheets, a children’s book and children’s flash cards. www.eon.org.au
JCY provided critical strategic direction to the WA Ballet which was instrumental in obtaining funding for their new premises in Maylands. JCY also donated graphics services which included artwork, signage and wayfinding design for the Ballet headquarters. www.waballet.com.au
KING STREET / WEST END
In 1989, JCY brought together business owners, PCC & other groups to redevelop King Street. Laneways and a vibrant 24/7 culture transformed a forgotten part of Perth into a district now renowned for its high-end designer fashion, cafe and small bar culture.
Following the success of the West End, JCY is spearheading the revitalisation of the area to the east of Northbridge.
As a leader in educational architecture, JCY regularly makes contributions to the Mayfield Project which strives for innovation in education.
