Junior League of Greenwich Announces Community Grant Opportunity

The Junior League of Greenwich is now accepting applications for its Community Grant Award. Every year, the Junior League of Greenwich awards a grant 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, not subsidize existing programs, and will be presented to the recipient in the Spring.

Community Grant applications are due December 8, 2017. For more information, please call the JLG office 203-869-1979 or email the Junior League at jlg@jlgreenwich.org.

Applications can be downloaded from the website www.jlgreenwich.org under ABOUT, COMMUNITY GRANT AWARD.

Last year, the Junior League of Greenwich presented the Community Grant Award to Abilis, Inc.

The grant was utilized to launch a new activities program, “Cookingand Crafts” for children with disabilities in the 4th-8th grade level. There is a gap in Saturday morning programming options for children with special needs. Most children have sports and other activities, while children with special needs do not have that opportunity. The Junior League of Greenwich grant enabled Abilis to fill this gap.

The Junior League of Greenwich has been bettering the community for nearly 60 years. It is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained individuals.

Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. The JLG is committed to inclusive environments of diverse individuals and reaches out to women of all races, religions, and national origins who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to voluntarism.

For more information, please contact the Junior League of Greenwich jlg@jlgreenwich.org and visit our website at www.jlgreenwich.org.
