Bingo Sessions Suspended

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the Minnesota Department of Health’s recommendations, the Minnesota Jaycees Charitable Foundation has decided to temporarily suspend our regularly scheduled Bingo sessions.

This decision did not come lightly, but we hope you will understand that the health and welfare of the public must be placed higher than the financial gain our organization realizes.

The duration of our suspension will coincide with the state-wide school-closing issued by Governor Walz. Therefore, the current plan will be to resume Bingo on at each site on the regularly scheduled date immediately following the reopening of the school system. The jackpot will be the same amount and limiting ball-count as it was when we suspended operations.

In addition to Social Media, you can also obtain any updates in the hand-held device app BingowsWhere.

You can find BingosWhere from their website www.bingoswhere.com/ or download it from the Apple App Store or Goolge Play.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to seeing all of you once the schools have reopened!

Chapter Grant Requests: Due March 31

JCI Minnesota – How would you like to get money to help run a community development project?

Now that I have your attention, let me tell you how the Minnesota Jaycees Charitable Foundation can help your chapter with that!

The Minnesota Jaycees Charitable Foundation sponsors grants to help chapters run quality projects based on the following criteria.

  • The project has community impact and/or furthers the Jaycee movement as indicated in the Project Management Guide (PMG).
  • First year projects are given priority.
  • The project will be completed during the current Jaycee year.
  • Grants submitted should be for a minimum of $250.00, however, less than the full amount requested may be granted.
  • Grant amounts will not exceed the project budget and the grant money must only be used for the project described in the request. If the project is not completed, the grant funds must be returned.
  • A final PMG will be required upon completion of the project. If a PMG is not received, chapters may not be considered for future grants.

Submitting a Grant Request

Grant requests are considered and disbursed throughout the year.  Deadline to submit a request for a Chapter Grant to be awarded at JCI Minnesota Spring All State Convention is MARCH 31.

How to Submit

Applications for a grant must include a completed application and the initial PMG, approved by the chapter board. There are two ways to complete your grant request:

Option 1

  • Use the online application.
    • This allows the option to: Upload an electronic version of your PMG (doc, docx, or pdf format only)
    • Or you can print and send a physical PMG to the Minnesota Jaycees Charitable Foundation

Option 2
