Junior Service League of Beaufort gives $4,120 to local non-profits

The Junior Service League of Beaufort (JSLB), started in 2005 and recently established as a 501(c)3, concludes its first formal grant process and awards a total of $4,120 to four local nonprofits. For seven years, the league has supported local agencies by donating time and talent.

This year, through the grant funding process, the league is able to donate over $4,000 to four deserving nonprofits to support a variety of programs.

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. This year’s recipients are: Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) who will receive $560 in support of their Cribs For Kids program; Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA) who will receive $1,060 for their Legal Assistance Fund for Women and Children to help pay for court fees; AMIkids Beaufort who will receive $2,000 for partial tuition for one child to enroll in a Welding Certification program at the Technical College of the Lowcountry (full tuition is $2,500); and Born To Read who will receive $500 to purchase nursery rhyme books for the Literacy Bags for new moms.

“We are thrilled to support all of these organizations and look forward to seeing their projects successful in helping women, children, and families in the Beaufort community. JSLB is very proud of what we have accomplished to help these organizations in our first year of the grant process,” said Delene Miller, Ways & Means Chair.

JSLB raises funds throughout the year and appreciates the continued support of community members. For more information about the league or how to sponsor an event, please visit www.jslbeaufort.org or call 803.315.7339.
