Fundraising and Community Projects

Junior Board of Rock Island is entering its 88th year of helping children and families in the Quad Cities area. Founded in 1935 with the mission of working together to serve children in our community, our primary focus began by supporting the Visiting Nurses & Homecare Association, by volunteering service hours for their child-related causes. Our organization has since expanded its support to over than 40 organizations in the Quad City area, having given more than $1.7 million in donations to child-related services.

We invite you to join us in serving the children of the Quad Cities area by making a monetary donation to the Junior Board of Rock Island (see the donate button to the right), or by participating in our fundraiser events throughout the year.
