Junior League Of The Palm Beaches’ Funding Opportunities Are Now Open

The Junior League of the Palm Beaches has two funding opportunities available — the Community Assistance Grants for nonprofit organizations and scholarships for high school students. Both funding opportunities are awarded to those who have demonstrated components of JLPB’s mission: promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Nonprofit organizations have until March 31 to apply for the Community Assistance Grant program, and selected grantees may receive up to $3,500 in financial aid toward a program or project. High school students have until April 4 to apply for the $2,500 scholarship. Scholarship funds are earmarked to help cover any student expenses for high school seniors who plan to attend college in the fall.

“We welcome all nonprofit organizations and high school students who share our mission to apply for the Community Assistance Grants and High School Scholarship,” said Alexandra Chase, president of JLPB. “We are honored to provide these groups the funds they need to help them implement new programs and initiatives into their organizations and get a head start on any college expenses.”

JLPB has awarded more than $135,000 to support community organizations through its Community Assistance Grant program, which was established in 1992.

In the 2020-21 year of giving, JLPB gave $21,841 to the community, as well as 2,400-plus hours volunteered through more than 140 community programs and events.

Nonprofit organizations will know if they have been selected to receive a grant by May 1. For more information, or to apply for the Community Assistance Grant or the scholarships, visit www.jlpb.org/community or call (561) 689-7590.
