Grant Description
Grants and in-kind volunteer support to Missouri nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for projects that promote community action, volunteer leadership, and the development of women's potential. Funding is intended for one-day projects that utilize the organizational expertise and trained volunteers of the Junior League. Organizations must demonstrate how they embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion in their work. Projects should impact residents of the Springfield community.

JLS is accepting proposals for Community Projects, which 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, one or two project sessions are scheduled a year, but if more are needed, the League can take that into consideration.

The Junior League of Springfield, Inc 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 volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The Junior League of Springfield values:

  • The necessity and significance of women exercising leadership throughout the community.
  • Training and education that advance personal and professional leadership skills.
  • Advocacy for issues impacting women and children.
  • An environment that encourages diversity of opinions and supports multi-generational engagement.
  • Each member’s unique needs for engagement in the League.

All projects shall support the mission and vision of JLS and no projects shall conflict with the JLS values.
