The Junior League of Baton Rouge is now accepting grant applications for its Community Assistance Fund through Friday, March 27. Each year, the JLBR Community Assistance Fund provides at least $60,000 in grant funding to organizations serving the Baton Rouge community.
“The Junior League of Baton Rouge is a group of women committed to improving our community and developing the potential of women,” said Namisha Patel-Vasanji, JLBR President. “These grants allow us to provide assistance to organizations with needs that align with our own vision of making lasting community change in the areas of health, education and cultural development.”
The Community Assistance Fund assists non-profit agencies with a 501(c)(3) designation in East Baton Rouge Parish with specific, short-term monetary needs up to $2,500. Grant funding is awarded to organizations with projects that align with JLBR’s focus in health, education and cultural development.
To submit an application and for detailed guidelines and instructions, visit www.juniorleaguebr.org/community/caf. If an organization does not apply for funding during this cycle, they can apply during the next cycle in fall of 2020. JLBR also offers a small number of trained “Ready Hands!” volunteers to support an organization by lending a hand at their community events.
