The Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) supports the community in numerous ways, including donating monies raised from fundraisers to event beneficiaries, providing grants from our Community Assistance Fund, providing volunteers to agencies selected as core placements and through “Difference in a Day” projects. Interested agencies or organizations may apply to be considered for any of these types of support from FBJSL. Applications and required supporting documents must be sent via email. Additional details and applications are available below.
Each league year, the Fort Bend Junior Service League reviews event beneficiary applicants based on the needs of those agencies and the goals of our organization. The FBJSL selects beneficiaries that will thrive due to our support and match the League’s vision for meeting the needs of the Fort Bend County area.
We are currently accepting Event Beneficiary applications for 2017-2018 FBJSL events. Each application must be in writing and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. It should be accompanied by the items set forth in the Event Beneficiary Application. The deadline for Event Beneficiary Applications for the 2017-2018 League Year is March 1, 2017. Email your application here.
COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE FUND (UP TO $5,000)
The FBJSL Community Assistance Fund (CAF), allows FBJSL to extend our financial support even further in the community by providing multiple smaller grants to a greater number of charitable causes in Fort Bend County. Community assistance funds allow the League to reach even more children, adults, and families in areas where we are not able to provide service with our volunteers or do not have regularly budgeted monies allocated.
Applications for CAF grants are accepted on an ongoing basis. If your agency or organization is interested in applying for a CAF grant, please download the following application and details regarding eligibility.
CAF grant requests are accepted throughout the year. Each grant application should be accompanied by the items set forth in the CAF Application and submitted to email@example.com.
A core placement is a charitable organization that the FBJSL has chosen to support by providing volunteers (FBJSL members) to serve the agency on a monthly basis. A core placement must be located in Fort Bend County with services being provided to Fort Bend County residents. If your agency is interested in applying to become a FBJSL core placement, please contact us.
“DIFFERENCE IN A DAY” PROJECTS
“Difference in a Day” projects are a way for FBJSL and its members to partner with organizations to help make a difference in the community in just a few short hours. While the projects may be short-term, the difference is long-term. These projects provide hands-on volunteer opportunities that result in an immediate impact in our community. The projects focus on short, intensive community projects that are completed in a single day or single weekend. The League is looking for several opportunities per year and is especially interested in family-friendly volunteering opportunities. A suitable project would allow volunteers to work together in groups of five or more to complete the specified project. If your agency is interested in applying for a “Difference in a Day” project, please complete the following application. Email your application here
