HJF Community Grants

Houston Junior Forum Community Grants

Originally, grant monies were restricted to benefit organizations with which the Houston Junior Forum had a volunteer relationship (HJF-approved service sites).

Within two years continued and successful fundraising efforts allowed the Community Grants Program to expand the scope of giving. With the approval of the membership, the HJF Community Grants Program moved forward to provide grant awards to benefit not only HJF service sites but also other nonprofit organizations with missions aligned to that of HJF. Expanding the scope of the Community Grants Program provided opportunities for Houston Junior Forum to partner with other entities that share a common philanthropic ideal and thereby increase assistance to the community.

Since its inception, the Houston Junior Forum Community Grants Program has there-by awarded over $1,000,000 and has been instrumental in helping nonprofits assist thousands of children, youth, women, and seniors.
