Grants of up to $2,500 and grants of up to $5,000 to Evansville, Indiana community organizations for projects that benefit the community. Special focus is placed on programs that serve women and children in poverty. In-kind grants of trained volunteer services are also available. Priority will be given to projects that will have the greatest impact on the community.
More details on the two categories of grants available are as follows:
Done in a Day Grants (DIAD):
Through the Done-In-A-Day projects, community organizations can request a group of trained volunteers for a specific one- or two-day special project or for a one-time need of extra volunteers. DIAD volunteers can provide hands-on support assisting with community events, projects or programs. Organizations with whom JLE partners for DIAD projects normally have programming that complements the JLE Mission and/or the focus area of women and children in poverty. Typical projects can be completed by 10 or fewer volunteers in one day or less, working two-hour shifts. The membership has skills and talents, so add detail that would be beneficial to the volunteer experience and your organization/event. Funds are limited to $2,500 per project and are to be used for the materials needed to complete the project.
The Junior League of Evansville awards several Small Grants to local Not-For-Profit Agencies annually. Each grant is capped at $5,000. Grants will be awarded to applicants with programming that compliments the JLE Mission, giving consideration to where money will have the greatest impact. Preference will be given to projects aligning with our community impact directive of women and children in poverty. Applications must be for program funding rather than general operating expenses.
