Jerwood Foundation
傑伍德基金會


The Jerwood Foundation was established by Alan Grieve for John Jerwood in 1977. Following John Jerwood’s death in 1991, the Foundation has flourished under Alan Grieve’s Chairmanship and inspiration. He has created and established the ethos of Jerwood; to support excellence in all areas of human endeavour, principally in the arts and education in its widest sense.

The Jerwood Foundation is dedicated to imaginative and responsible funding and sponsorship of the arts, education and other areas of human endeavour and excellence, particularly supporting artists and young professionals based in the United Kingdom. It has supported a range of activities across the visual and performing arts and education, as well as film, literature, medicine and some international work in Nepal.

Past and Present

John Jerwood started his working life in the family jewellery business in Hatton Garden, London. After serving in the Second World War, he moved to Tokyo, where he married and settled to establish what was to become one of the largest dealerships of cultured pearls in the world. In his book Jerwood, The Foundation and the Founders, (Unicorn Press 2009) Matthew Sturgis relates that ‘by the beginning of the 1970s, having built up a considerable fortune, Jerwood was already making donations to various causes. On 2 March 1977, the Jerwood Foundation was formally established by Alan Grieve for John Jerwood.’

During John Jerwood’s lifetime, the Foundation made benefactions principally in the fields of education and music. After John Jerwood’s death in 1991, Alan Grieve, who had been on the Council of the Foundation since 1977, became its Chairman and Director.

Since then, the Foundation has flourished under Alan Grieve’s Chairmanship and inspiration. He has created and established the ethos of Jerwood; to support excellence in all areas of human endeavour, principally in the arts and education in its widest sense. Alan Grieve has displayed a vivid sense of the Foundation from its inception; and has seen the Foundation he first imagined brought into being. He says of the development of Jerwood ‘I have been asked on number of occasions how the mission and ethos of Jerwood developed. It is a question to which I cannot give a simple answer. I did what I believed to be right, what I felt was enterprising and would lead to tangible results. But most of all I did what I believe John Jerwood would have approved of.’

Now the Jerwood Foundation is dedicated to imaginative and responsible funding and sponsorship of the arts, education and other areas of human endeavour and excellence, particularly supporting artists and young professionals based in the United Kingdom. The Jerwood Foundation has truly succeeded in its mission with work that absolutely embodies their ethos.

歷史和現狀

約翰・傑伍德( John Jerwood )的工作生涯始 於其家族生意的珠寶產業。他參加了第二次世 界大戰,戰後,他移居東京,在那裡他步入了婚 姻的殿堂,定居下來,開創自己的事業,並在以 後成為了世界上最大的人工養殖珍珠經銷商之 一。在二十世界70年代初,傑伍德積攢了相當的 財富,他開始為各種人事捐贈。在1977年的三月 二日,艾倫・格里( Alan Grieve )福為約翰・傑 伍德正式成立了傑伍德基金會。

在約翰・傑伍德在世的時候,基金會主要在教 育和音樂領域捐贈。艾倫・格里福自1977年就 在基金會理事會中任職,在約翰・傑伍德死後, 艾倫・格里福成為基金會的主席和董事。

在1991年約翰・傑伍德的去世後,在艾倫・格里福的主席身份和他的示靈感之下,基金會蓬 勃發展。正是艾倫・格里福創建了傑伍德基金 會的社會精神特質:支持人類所涉及的各個領 域,主要支持最廣泛意義上的藝術和教育。也 正是由於艾倫・格里福的睿智,基金會自其成立 之初而時至今日,這個只能算是半成品的想法, 這個一種新型基金會的假想變成了現實。當提 及傑伍德基金會的發展時,格里福寫道:“我在 各種場合被問過傑伍德基金會的使命和社會精 神特質是如何發展而來的。這個問題,我很難 用一個簡單答案來回答。我做了我所相信是正 確的,我所感覺是銳意進取的,並且會有有形 結果的。但最重要的,我做了我相信約翰・傑伍 德 會 贊 成 的 。”

如今,傑伍德基金會致力於以一種富有想像力且 負責任的態度來贊助藝術、教育以及其他人類為 之不懈奮鬥的領域,其中他們特別重視對於年輕 的英國藝術家和專業人士的資助和培養。傑伍德 基金會一直在為他們的使命而不懈努力,他們的 傑出工作也確實體現了基金會的精神氣質。
