The Junior League of Santa Barbara (JLSB) is pleased to announce that they are accepting applications for their Community Assistance Funds through Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019. The League will award up to $10,000 to local non-profits who apply with programs that support the League’s vision to improve the lives of at-risk children, youth and families in Santa Barbara. More information about the process and the link to apply can be found at JLSantaBarbara.org/community-assistance-funds.
In an effort to extend the League’s reach and to address the Community’s greatest needs, the Junior League of Santa Barbara has been awarding Community Assistance Funds for several years. Organizations interested in applying should have programs that similarly fulfill the mission and vision statements of the Junior League and align with the focus area of improving the lives of at-risk young women by educating and empowering them to reach their full potential while working to prevent exploitation and injustice in our community.
In 2018 a total of $10,000 was awarded to three non-profits: Harvest Community Center, Domestic Violence Solutions, and The Turner Learning Center. 2017 recipients included five organizations: Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse (CADA), Domestic Violence Solutions, New Beginnings Counseling Center, SEE International, and The Turner Foundation.
The deadline for the Community Assistance Fund application is Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019. Any questions regarding the application should be directed to Raina Palta, JLSB Community Council Director, at Community.CD@JLSantaBarbara.org.
