Major and Special Gift Opportunities

Since its founding in 1904, the Connecticut Junior Republic has been the beneficiary of major gift support from friends and supporters throughout the United States.  Major capital fundraising campaigns have made possible the construction and expansion of nearly all of the buildings on CJR’s Litchfield Campus, and have contributed to significant improvements at its community-based program sites as well. 

CJR defines gifts of $5,000 or more as major gifts.  In recent years, such gifts have supported facilities construction, equipment and programs to enhance the quality of CJR's care, treatment and education services.  

CJR’s current priorities include the growth and expansion of its Wellness Centers in eight locations throughout Connecticut; the purchase of new books and learning aids for the School Library; funding for summer and after-school programs associated with its Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs in East Hartford, Torrington and Waterbury; and funding for scholarships.
