Junior League of the Palm Beaches is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. In commemoration of our 75th year in existence, we are renovating the existing Vita Nova Residences.

Buy A Brick and Leave a Lasting Legacy

We invite you to be a part of this community project by purchasing a brick in the entranceway. Buy a brick for yourself or in honor or memory of friends or loved ones; pay tribute to someone who has made an impact on your life or career; make a lasting footprint in our community. You can have a name, business name, or message engraved that will be permanently displayed. Your generous donation will allow us to provide facilities that will enhance the life of a young adult who has aged out of the foster care system and promote the mission of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches.
