Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to Wilmington, North Carolina nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit children and youth living in underserved areas. Funding is intended to support innovative activities in the areas of academic achievement, arts enrichment, and community service.

The Junior League of Wilmington Community Research and Giving grants funding to programs and organizations whose missions are congruent with the League's commitment to eliminating barriers to education by expanding opportunity across racial, socio-economic, and diverse educational lines within the education system for students in the Youth Enrichment Zone, as defined by the City of Wilmington’s Blue Ribbon Commission to end youth Violence.

The following are the JLW’s community impact focus areas:

- Philanthropic Partners: The Junior League of Wilmington works to make the largest impact for children growing up in the YEZ. The League seeks to establish partnerships designed to integrate elements from each of its core philanthropic pillars – the delight of success in the classroom, the enrichment of the arts, and the power of community service – to make the greatest impact possible for children in the community.

- Outcome Driven Community Programming: The Junior League of Wilmington seeks to partner with organizations that are making a measurable change within the community and among the populations served. Measuring and reporting the impact the League is making is an important bench-marking process that enables the League to communicate the volunteer and monetary impact it is making to the community at large. The League seeks partnerships where measurable outcomes are monitored, recorded and shared.

- Reducing Barriers to Education: The Junior League of Wilmington seeks to partner with local organizations that have a record of improving student achievement and attainment in order to expand the implementation of, and investment in, innovative practices that are demonstrated to have an impact on improving student achievement, closing achievement gaps, and decreasing dropout rates, which ultimately increase high school graduation rates by eliminating the barriers to education.
