JLG Announces Community Grant Award

posted on

The Junior League of Greenwich® (JLG) is now accepting applications for its Community Grant Award. Every year, the Junior League of Greenwich awards up to $5,000 to a community organization. The grant is to provide financial support for a community need not currently being met by Junior League projects or programs. The grant will be awarded to fund new initiatives or expand programs relating to community needs, and is not to subsidize an existing program. The grant will be presented to the recipients in the Spring of 2021.

Community Grant applications are due January 4, 2021. For more information, please call the JLG office 203-869-1979 or email the Junior League at jlg@jlgreenwich.org.

Last year, the Junior League of Greenwich presented the entirety of our $5,000 Community Grant Award to Girls with Impact Inc. Our grant helped 18 high school girls from a low to moderate income background in the Greenwich area participate in a 5-day summer camp program which provides age appropriate activities matching the curriculum of Girls With Impact Academy program. Girls With Impact Inc, is an organization whose mission is to equip girls with the business and leadership skills required of today’s workforce, thereby increasing their college and career successes, financial literacy, and economic impact.
