Lafayette, LA - June 13, 2012. The Junior League of Lafayette is accepting grant applications from nonprofit organizations to fund projects that fill a community need. A total of twenty-four grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $1,000 - $10,000 depending upon the need and overall cost of the project. In addition, trained volunteers are available and will be assigned to assist with these projects.
Community projects should be completed between September 15, 2012 and April 30, 2013. Priority will be extended to applications that are in the Junior League's focus area: the general well-being of women and the healthy development of children, and are also congruent with its Mission: a commitment to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Due date is July 12, 2012.
