Grant Opportunities

Project Guidelines for 2022-2023 Requests:

  • Projects should be fulfilled between June 2022 – May 2023.
  • All projects shall support the mission and vision of JLS (see below). No projects shall conflict with the JLS values (see below).
  • Projects should utilize The Junior League’s trained volunteers and organizational expertise.
  • JLS is accepting proposals for Done in a Day Projects. Done In a Day Projects should be able to be completed in a single day. Volunteers are typically utilized for a 3 to 4-hour shift, but multiple shifts can be considered if the project will take longer than that. Generally, we schedule one or two project sessions a year, but if more are needed, we can take that into consideration.
