The JHS Volleyball Team Needs Your Support

The Julian High School girls' volleyball team is in desperate need of new practice equipment, protective gear, uniforms and more. The team has been operating on limited funds for years and now needs to replace torn balls, an unregulated net system and other items necessary for them to be successful this season. Please support them by donating today. Your donation will be used to purchase the equipment they need. Donations are accepted via check (make the check out to Backcountry Communities Thriving and mail your check to our post office address at the bottom of the page), Donorbox, PayPal,  Venmo (see links below) or through our current Facebook/Instagram fundraising campaign. Please be sure to notate that you are donating to the "JHS Volleyball Team" and include your contact information. All donations over $75 will receive a tax deductible receipt from Backcountry Communities Thriving.

Donate to the Abigail College Scholarship Fund

We would like you to meet Abigail Yenawine. If you don't know her already, she is a 2023 Julian High School graduate, Miss Julian Princess and an amazingly strong young woman. Abigail tragically lost her father shortly before her high school graduation ceremony last week. Still reeling from the loss of her mother last year, Abigail needs our support.

Abigail will be attending UC Merced in the fall to pursue a degree in Biochemistry. She has been working so hard to achieve her goal to work in the medical industry. We have been able to raise enough funds for her freshman year in college. BCT is dedicated to being a source of support for Abigail for her entire college experience. Therefore our fundraising efforts will continue.

Please consider donating to the Abigail College Scholarship Fund. This is an extremely difficult time for her and we as a community need to do whatever we can to help Abigail soar.

100% of all donations to the Abigail College Scholarship Fund will go directly to Abigail. Donations can be made:
