Community Grants

On an annual basis, the Junior League of Montgomery’s (JLM) Community Research Committee accepts grant applications for funding and volunteer placement.  We strive to support a variety of local community organizations that provide programs that fit within our organizational goal of “strengthening families.”

Money raised via our annual College and Career Night, Holiday Market, Women’s Leadership Summit, The Rummage Sale, and other fundraising projects provide the funds to support our Community Research grants. The JLM is proud to have donated over $550,000.00 to community groups over the last five years. The JLM has helped complete projects at a variety of local non-profit organizations including Aid to Inmate Mothers, Brantwood Children’s Home, Disability as an Ability Toward Success: Moms on the Move, Impact Alabama, Montgomery Area Council on Aging, Montgomery Christian School (MCS), Nellie Burge Community Center, Service Dogs Alabama, Strong Tower at Washington Park, and Women in Training, Inc.

Grant-funded organizations also receive a commitment of member volunteers to assist with completing funded projects.

Community Assistance Fund

The Community Assistance Fund provides a means for the Junior League of Montgomery to respond quickly to the limited funding needs of non-profit agencies. A volunteer component is not required and requests may come from outside our focus area. This fund enables the League to share resources without project commitment and increase our impact and visibility in the community.
