The Junior League of Lynchburg has selected the following three local organizations with which to partner for the 2018-19 year.
Camp Kum-Ba-Yah (CKBY)
CKBY serves emerging social needs by engaging children, families, and community in meaningful outdoor experiences. The CKBY experience instills a love for the natural world that teaches compassion, healthy choices, and a persistent passion for protecting and restoring the environment.
Miller Home for Girls (MH)
The MH provides short- or long-term care and guidance to non-delinquent girls who cannot live with their own families, and endeavors to provide a supportive environment which encourages each girl to grow and develop to her highest potential. Mentoring activities are planned to occur monthly to support the mission of the MH.
The Motherhood Collective (TMC)
TMC equips and empowers women from preconception through postpartum via evidence-based education and social support. Their Care Bag Project, in conjunction with Vector Space, will gift tangible evidence to women in our community confirming they are not alone as they walk through infertility, miscarriage, anxiety and/or depression in pregnancy or postpartum.
Through Community Partnerships, the League solicits applications from interested area nonprofits each spring and selects two to three to partner with each year. This allows us to leverage our resources more effectively and efficiently, as all financial and volunteer assistance is focused solely on these organizations for the year. Organizations are chosen because of their work aligning with the mission of the JLL.
Nonprofit and community organizations interested in being considered for next year’s partnerships may apply until March 31, 2019. Applications are accepted via our online application, or by downloading and mailing a hard copy to:
