Supporting Health and Education in Hanover, Jamaica
TRYALL FUND INITIATIVES
The Tryall Fund was formed in the early 1960s as a vehicle through which members and friends of the Tryall Club could contribute to the community health, education and welfare activities in the Parish of Hanover, Jamaica. The Tryall Fund is primarily supported by Tryall Club members, who feel a deep affinity for the Jamaican people and for the communities neighboring the Club.
This connection is cemented by the direct involvement of its wonderful and generous volunteer board and committee members. With their help, nearly 100% of the money raised goes into the charity projects. The Fund stays focused on three main initiatives, with our "Success by Six" program currently the most extensive and comprehensive.changing and shaping lives. creating opportunities for individuals and communities.
