A portion of the mission of JCESBA is to provide support to non-profits and schools located on the eastside or who provide services to the East End. In recent years, JCESBA has provided monetary donations
to organizations such as the Samaritan Center, Boys & Girls Club, East Elementary School, Moreau Heights Elementary School, Lincoln University and the Blue Tigers Athletic Fund, United Way, Salute to America (Jefferson City’s 4th of July celebration), Toys for Tots, and Small Business Saturday.In 2012, JCESBA established a scholarship fund with proceeds from its Annual Benefit Golf Tournament to award college or trade school scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to a number of local high school graduate applicants.Advocacy for the East End is also important to JCESBA. Over the years, many letters to city council and other state leaders were submitted regarding eastside issues including road construction, use of taxes, etc. We want to ensure the East End voice is always heard.
JCESBA also supports many one-time projects
to improve the business and residential communities on the eastside.
