Buckets of Love

Buckets of Love

Since the 1940s, Quota Clubs have been gathering donations for women and children receiving help from food pantries, homeless or abuse shelters, community centers, medical centers, hospitals, and schools. This project has grown into more than just buckets filled with food and clothing, healthcare and cleaning supplies, diaries and journals, toys and games, books, and school supplies.'Buckets' are also baskets, backpacks, hampers, lunch pails, purses, and shoe boxes.

In Her Shoes Grant

Scholarships and Grants

Quota International was founded with the mission of encouraging young women to go to and stay in school. Since 1919, Quotarians have granted millions of dollars in college scholarships to deaf or hard of hearing students or those who pursue a degree assisting people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Millions of dollars have also been donated to social service agencies providing assistance to women and children, and deaf and hard of hearing in over 250 Quota communities.


JQ Care Bears

JQ (Junior Quota) Leadership

The first JQ Club launched in 2004. Every year hundreds of high school and college students are mentored throughout Australia, Canada, the Philippines, and the United States to develop leadership skills in their communities. JQ members provide comfort at women's shelters, make blankets for Project Linus, fill shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, collect food for local food banks and Backpack Buddies, clean up public areas, raise funds for cancer research, and so much more.
