Building Better Communities
The Junior League of Lubbock is always open to those who want to team up to conquer these issues and make a difference.
The purpose of the Community Assistance Grant is to distribute funds to non-profit agencies to address human needs and/or meet the needs of tax-exempt agencies. A total of $20,000 may be awarded each year as determined by the Community Impact Council and the Executive Board of Directors. Agencies awarded monies may not receive further CAG funding in the following 12 months.
Part of the Junior League of Lubbock mission states the organization is committed to “improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.” Members sign up for three-hour volunteer shifts for charitable causes and organizations.
Every spring, the Junior League of Lubbock awards the $2,500 Volunteer Service Award Scholarship to a young woman who is either a high school senior, or has obtained a GED within the current League year, or is attending a transitional school and will be enrolling in post-secondary education. She should reside in Lubbock, Lamb, Hale, Floyd, Crosby, Garza, Lynn, Terry, or Hockley County and should demonstrate an exemplary commitment to voluntarism.
The JLL Foundation, which is still in its infancy, is always accepting donations. This foundation, once fully funded, will supply monetary grants to non-profit agencies.
The JLL has chosen Elder Care as our new focus area. We aim to team up with agencies in the Lubbock community by providing funding and volunteers and creating a partnership to best serve the needs of this population.
