Community Project Requests

Each year, the Junior League of Dallas through the Research & Development Committee identifies approximately 40 projects that will comprise the majority of the JLD Community Program for the following year.


The 2020-2021 Community Program grantees will receive trained JLD volunteers and/or funding during the 2021-2022  JLD fiscal year (June-May).

Applications for the 2021-2022 Community Program are open from March 4 – May 7, 2020.

Our grant application cycle for our Community Grants, Provisional Projects and Transfer Projects typically opens in March of each year. We offer a Grants Workshop in late February or early March each year.

Projects must further the JLD mission and respond to recognized community needs.

Grants are available to nonprofit agencies in Dallas County 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. There is a 10 volunteer minimum.

The request process from application to acceptance of approved projects takes approximately one year.
