The top two things the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) does very, very well are fundraising and socializing. If you’re new to town, want to meet friends, and are willing to roll up your sleeves and get things done, this could be the group for you. What kind of work, you ask? The executive board lists 20 members in charge of areas such as marketing, finance, charitable giving, and more. Rank and file membership provides the muscle to make the Clubs major initiatives happen. Everyone brings their talents and abilities to the table.
Here’s what’s next on the Club’s agenda:
Grants (application deadline TBA, usually Feb. 1)
The 2024 Grant Application will be available soon. For first-time applicants, please complete the Grants Application. Please complete the Grants Application and the Grants Report below for returning applicants. The deadline for grant applications is usually February 1.
Following the grant review process, applicants will receive written notification of the committee’s decision by the end of May, regardless of whether they are awarded a grant or not. Awards are distributed in early June.
Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour (2024 TBA, usually early May)
The Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour showcases gorgeous homes in Wellesley, and the work of local design stars. Juniors work behind the scenes all year to make it happen. On the big day, you can see them in every opened-up room of every home, with smiles on their faces, and an eye on the crowd.
