Each year, the Town Council sets aside an amount of money to donate to local Jupiter non-profit organizations that provide programs and services to Town residents not offered by the local government. Typically, this amount is budgeted at $25,000, but it may vary from year to year.
Organizations who apply for funding will be evaluated based on:
Status as a registered non-profit (501(c)3)
The number of Jupiter residents directly served by the programs and services identified
The proposed use(s) of the funding
The value provided to the Jupiter community
Applications are due each year on March 1, and consideration of the funding requests by the Town Council typically takes place at one of the regular April Council meetings. Funding is dispersed within two weeks of approval.
Organizations submitting requests for funding are required to provide proof of non-profit status (501(c)3 designation).
