Each year, the Junior League of Lynchburg welcomes applications from community nonprofit organizations to enter into a one-year community partnership with the JLL. Through these partnerships, the JLL offers volunteer service, financial assistance, and advocacy, with a goal of multifaceted impact within each organization and the greater Lynchburg community.
Annual giving to community partnerships ranges from $500-$2,000, and each funding request must be approved by the JLL Board of Directors. All funding is made on the condition the money will be used only for the purpose for which it was provided. Granted partnership does not guarantee funding for each request. Funding requests that include JLL volunteer opportunities will be given priority, as this will better allow for an understanding of community needs among our membership.
Preference will be given to organizations and projects which support the Junior League of Lynchburg’s primary focus. More information can be found here. Community partnerships will only be awarded to tax-exempt organizations and institutions that have received a 501(c)(3) classification from the IRS.
If you have any questions, please contact the Community Vice President via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 2-3 days for a response.
