Junior League of Lafayette is committed to providing this community with direct and indirect resources, namely financial contributions and volunteer hours. Each year, Junior League puts out a call for proposals in which area non-profits are invited to submit proposals.
For Fall 2016-2017, Junior League awarded $52,129.60 in grants for Collaborative Opportunity Grants (where League members volunteer to work with the nonprofit to assist in completing the grant) and Community Enrichment/Community Resource Funds (where funds are provided to the nonprofit to complete the grant).
