Barrington Junior Women’s Club has two major fundraisers, kicking off our year each September with efforts focused on our annual November Fall Fashion Show and then a Spring Casino Night held in late winter. With these proceeds, we are then able to provide grants to over two dozen local charities and not-for-profit organizations, as well as one leadership scholarship and five community service scholarships to Barrington High School graduating seniors. Our grant process begins in late January of each year and wraps up with a daytime grant reception in May. Our scholarship application process also begins in late January, with scholarships announced at the BHS scholarship ceremony.
In 2018, we provided $105,000 in community grants to organizations benefitting women, children, and seniors. Our scholarship contributions totaled $24,000, with BJWC being the largest contributor to BHS scholarships.
