Grants and volunteer support to Alabama nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for programs that strengthen families in local communities. Funding is intended to support volunteer assisted projects that promote the education and positive development of youth and children, enhance parenting skills, assist the elderly and the medically underserved, and strengthen the community as a whole. Funded projects must serve the residents of Montgomery.

The Junior League of Montgomery’s (JLM) Community Research Committee accepts grant applications for funding and volunteer placement.  Each financial award is accompanied by volunteers. 

Projects must address a major community need and fall within their focus area of “Strengthening Families.” The project should ideally utilize 8-25 volunteers for 15-20 hours each in a meaningful way. A minimum of 8-10 volunteers must be utilized in the project. Priority will be given to proposals that offer a variety of clearly defined volunteer opportunities.

Funded projects may impact Montgomery in areas such as education, children and youth, low income families, life skills development, the elderly, youth at risk, early intervention, parenting, domestic violence, cultural enrichment, and health and well being.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications and supporting materials should be submitted via e-mail only, to JLM Community Research, by 11:59 p.m., Friday, August 21, 2020.

After you submit your proposal, you will be contacted by a Community Research Committee member to discuss your proposal, and a site visit may be scheduled. This will occur after September 1, 2020.

The Committee members will thoroughly review each submitted proposal, and after the review process the CRC will make a recommendation to the Junior League Board of Directors.

Proposed projects will be voted on by the full JLM membership in February 2021. (Applicants not receiving funding will be notified via email by February 2021.)

Projects are not officially accepted until a minimum number of Junior League members volunteer to staff the project. Thus, a membership-approved project can be denied funding if members do not choose to volunteer for the project.

A contract between the Junior League and the sponsoring organization of each accepted project will be signed in May 2021. Checks will be presented to the selected organizations at that time.
