This educational initiative fosters civic responsibility, heightens an appreciation for local history, and introduces the students to the world of philanthropy.

The Junior Board awards $25,000 in grants annually to worthwhile preservation projects in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) of Georgia and South Carolina. During the school year, the Junior Board conducts research, pre-grant inquiries, and site visits. The Board meets monthly. The Board's past preservation projects have included the conservation of grave markers at the Wrightsboro Cemetery, conservation of a Confederate survivors banner, and the preservation of a grist mill in Lincoln County.
