Junior League of Dallas is committed to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our volunteers and dollars support local non-profit agencies through our Signature Projects: Grants for Innovative Teaching, Kids in the Kitchen, Women LEAD, Community Outreach/Community Assistance Fund, Musical Therapy and Provisional Projects. Additionally, Junior League of Dallas annually reviews and selects Community Project Requests (R&D) which align with our Issue Areas of support to be a part of our Community Program.
Additional opportunities for funding include:
