IMPACTING OUR COMMUNITY
Since our inaugural year in 2005, we have provided service to a variety of local agencies, including: Born to Read, Boys and Girls Club of the Lowcountry, CAPA, Friends of Caroline Hospice, Help of Beaufort, Hopeful Horizons, Thumbs Up, YMCA, United Way of the Lowcountry, and many more.
The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB) will be issuing Grant Funds for the 2021-22 League year. Requests for funds shall be accepted from non-profit 501(c)3 organizations that complement our mission to support and enrich the lives of women, children, and families in our community. This is a one-time grant. Organizations must reapply annually.
Grant requests may be submitted electronically or through US mail by March 1st, 2022 for consideration and must be limited to 10 pages. Upon receiving all qualified applications, the JSLB Appropriations Committee will review and make the grant award(s) by the end of April 2022.
In 2021, through the grant funding process, the league was able to donate $12,500 spread over 10 deserving nonprofits to support a variety of programs. The originally allocated funding for the 2020-2021 year was set at $7,500. Through the efforts of our League members, as well as all the support we received from our community, we were able to increase the total grant fund by $3,000. The agencies selected to receive funding are all closely aligned with the JSLB mission to enrich the lives of women, children, and families in our community.

In an effort to promote consistency and transparency in the grant reporting process, JSLB requires a Grant Fund Reporting form with the 2022 grant reporting deadline. Failure to submit the 2022 grant fund reporting will disqualify the organization from the 2023 grant process. This form is due by December 31, 2022. You may download it HERE.
