JLA is also seeking organizational grant applications for grants up to $2,500 to be presented to local community organizations that express a need in addressing women’s and children’s issues.

The Junior League of Alexandria Grants Program’s exclusive goal is to support other non-profit organizations in the community that are working in the League’s focus area by awarding them direct financial assistance.

JLA has afforded the grant committee the liberty to consider proposals for any legitimate need in addressing women’s and children’s safety and life skills issues. In receiving detailed narratives of other community efforts, the League is better able to keep its finger on the pulse of these issues. Not only interesting and impressive, these proposals foster networking and informational exchange opportunities that are vital to working efficiently and effectively.

The Grant Committee and the League as a whole look forward to learning about and assisting in many worthwhile efforts to enrich the lives of women and children in our community.
