Special Aids Grant

Special Aid Grants

Each year the Junior League of Racine contributes money to the community through the Special Aids Grant Program. These allocated funds relate to the Junior League’s mission and vision to invest in programs that enhance the well-being women of children. A maximum of $500 may be given to an organization to accomplish its proposed program.

Past dollars have supported the Racine Zoo, Family Literacy of Racine, Cops N Kids Reading Center, and the YWCA.

We invite your nonprofit organization (US IRS issued 501©3) to apply for a Special Aids Grant.
