The Junior League of Alexandria Grants Program’s exclusive goal is to support other non-profit organizations in the community who are working in the League’s focus area by awarding them direct financial assistance. A unique aspect of this grant program is that there are no categorical restrictions on the use of the money.
JLA has afforded the grant committee the liberty to consider proposals for any legitimate need in addressing women’s and children’s issues–administrative, direct care and all things in between. In receiving detailed narratives of other community efforts, the League is better able to keep its finger on the pulse of these issues. Not only interesting and impressive, these proposals foster networking and informational exchange opportunities that are vital to working efficiently and effectively.
Grants are awarded up to $2,500.00 each. The Grant Committee and the League as a whole look forward to learning about and assisting in many worthwhile efforts to enrich the lives of women and children in our community.
The 2020 League Grant application period is now open. The deadline for applications is February 28, 2020.
