The Junior League of Greenwich Seeks Community Grant Applicants

The Junior League of Greenwich is designating up to $5,000 in grant money for one or more community organizations.

Every year, the Junior League of Greenwich awards up to $5,000 to one or more community organizations through its Community Grant Award.  The purpose of this grant is to provide financial support for and address a community need that is not being met by current JLG projects or programs. The grant is intended to fund new initiatives, not subsidize existing programs.

The aggregate amount awarded will be up to $5,000.  Applications are due by November 30, 2012.  The requests will be reviewed and approved by the Junior League of Greenwich Board of Directors and presented in spring 2012.  Applications may be found on the Junior League of Greenwich website (click here: http://www.jlgreenwich.org/?nd=communitygrants).

Last year’s recipients were Voluntary Services for the Blind of Fairfield County and Mothers for Others.  The Voluntary Services for the Blind of Fairfield County grant was used to expand its program into a new market in Greenwich, specifically targeting underserved populations at residences such as Agnes Morley, Nathaniel Witherell, Quarry Knoll, McKinley Terrace and Wilbur Peck.  The Mothers for Others grant was used to help families find a meaningful place to donate baby and child related items, while assisting other families in obtaining those same items that they need but cannot afford.
