Non-profit Organizations Invited to Submit Funding Proposal and Service Project Requests

Reciprocity Dinner

The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club is preparing to distribute the funds it has raised during the 2015-2016 club year to organizations aiding women and children in need throughout the greater Joliet community.

For more than 50 years, members of the Joliet Junior Woman’s Club have donated countless hours assisting those in need through their service and fundraising efforts.

The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club is pleased to again offer local non-profit organizations the opportunity to submit a Funding Proposal. In addition, we are also looking for hands-on opportunities to help organizations that may need our assistance. If your organization has a specific need for volunteers or a special project needing assistance, we would like to hear from you. Please complete the Service Project Request to be considered. Potential service projects would take place between June 2015 and May 2016.

Please submit your request by March 21, 2016.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Joliet Juniors Donate to Help Community

Reciprocity Dinner

The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club distributed over $17,000 to help others in the Joliet area community this year.  Funds were raised at the Club’s fall fundraiser, “Cuisine in the Corn for a Cause,” which was organized by immediate Past President, Lauren McFarland.  The Joliet Juniors Philanthropy Committee, led by chairwomen Connie Head and Sara Gilbert, reviewed applications from local organizations and made recommendations based on all requests received. The donations will aid local not-for-profit organizations helping women and children in the local community. Easter Seals, the Will-Grundy Medical Clinic, and Joliet Area Hospice were top recipients along with those pictured below. Funds are distributed annually and local organizations are encouraged to apply each year.
