The Small Community Projects initiative was created to further meet the needs of community organizations looking for assistance. The committee will implement between three and five community projects per year that require both volunteer time as well as a financial component but are smaller than our regular community projects. These organizations must meet the mission of the Junior League of Boca Raton and be approved by the SCP committee prior to acceptance and implementation. There is not a separate application for this category of assistance. Please contact CommunityProjects@jlbr.org for more information.
