Community Project Requests

Each year, the Research and Development Committee identifies approximately 40 projects that will comprise the majority of the JLD Community Program for the year. The committee accepts project requests that further the mission of the JLD and respond to recognized community needs. Requests must include a volunteer placement component for JLD members and may also include a funding component.

Community Project Requests (R&D)

  • Available to nonprofit agencies in Dallas County and/or the City of Dallas that meet the established criteria.
  • Agencies requesting JLD funding must also include a volunteer placement component to their request that will provide a minimum of 60 hours of service opportunities per volunteer.
  • The request process from application to acceptance of approved projects takes approximately one year.


The application deadline for the 2014-2015 funding year has passed; applications for the 2015-2016 funding year will be available in early 2015. 

The next Grant Application Workshop will be held in Spring 2015. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about all grant opportunities provided by the Junior League of Dallas, including R&D, Provisional Projects, Kids in the Kitchen, and emergency funding requests.
