The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club is now accepting applications for grants. Through the years WHJWC has generated $4.5 million in funding that supports essential social services, making it one of the largest grant-making organizations in the area. The club donates to a variety of educational, recreational, healthcare, youth, civic and community programs. Particular emphasis is placed on those programs that serve the Wellesley community as a whole and its individual residents.
Applications are available online at www.WHJWC.org and should be sent to the attention of Ingrid Houghton, Chair, Donations Committee, [email protected], or mailed to Juniors Donations, PO Box 81194, Wellesley Hills, MA 02482-0002 no later than February 1, 2011.
The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club was established in 1944 as a service organization under the Massachusetts Federation of Woman’s Clubs. Through its four fundraisers – the Wellesley Phone Book, the Marketplace craft festival, Luminary Night and the Kitchen Tour – WHJWC raises money that is donated to local charities and to Wellesley scholarship recipients.
