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 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 graduating from high school and college-bound in the fall of the award year residing in Lubbock, Lamb, Hale, Floyd, Crosby, Garza, Lynn, Terry, or Hockley County who has demonstrated 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 Focus Area is a single focus area within the community for which the Junior League of Lubbock has committed funding and volunteers.
