We’re incredibly excited to announce the Jonas Software 2019 charity of the year is the Pituitary Foundation!
Who Are Jonas Software?
Jonas Software is the parent company of TRP. Within the health and fitness industry other companies within the group include CAP2, Gladstone, Xn, Jonas Fitness, Member Solutions, 97 Display, EZFacility, eFit Financial, Frontline Solutions, Authentic8, Centaman, MiGym, InnoSoft, SignMeUp, Pike13, and EZ-Runner.
Why the Pituitary Foundation?
The Pituitary Foundation aims to help and support people across the UK who have been affected by Pituitary conditions; including patients, their relatives, friends, and carers.
With just ten members of staff, they’re a small charity that relies on volunteers and public donations to operate and provide their services.
There are a wide variety of disorders, conditions and diseases related to the Pituitary Gland; a tiny organ we all have just below our brain.
Just the size of a pea, it’s sometimes called the ‘Master Gland’ because of the vital role it plays in circulating hormones around the body and stimulating other glands to produce theirs. As you can imagine, if anything causes it to work incorrectly, the knock-on effects can be devastating.

Working together with our sister company and office-sharers, CAP2, we have pledged to raise £2,000 for the foundation during 2019. Jonas Software as a whole is aiming to generate a whopping £25,000 for the charity!
Having already raised £230 between the two companies, we are looking to smash our target out of the water and the office is buzzing with ideas of what we can do to raise money, spread the word about the great work of the charity and help them have a super successful 2019; their 25th anniversary year!
In the lead up to the festive break, for example, CAP2’s Andreea showed her creative flair running a bauble-making session to kick off our fundraising activities!
