For the fourth year in a row, Healthier Jupiter will offer Mini-Grants to impact the health of our community. This will culminate in our Community Grants BBQ on October 12th from 1:00pm to 3:30pm at Jupiter Community Center. This event is free and open to the public with a healthy BBQ. At the Community Grants BBQ organizations will share their proposed projects and the community will vote for those projects they wish to see funded.
Twelve finalists will have the opportunity to share with community members about their project, science-fair style, and the community will then choose eight projects to get awarded $2,500 each.
We encourage organizations applying for to spread the word to your community members, clients, volunteers, friends, family and invite them to come out to support your project and other projects in the community. This is a great opportunity for community members to learn more about our hard-working organizations. It is an extremely valuable experience for organizations to showcase their work to engaged community members and to network with other local nonprofits, agencies and community leaders.
Voting will be open from 1:00pm to 3:30pm and grant recipients will be announced at 4:15pm.
Healthier Jupiter will need volunteers for this great event! Please fill out our Volunteer Form and we will be in touch with more details about volunteering at the Community Grants BBQ.
