Joliet Junior Woman’s Club Funding Requests

Dear Community Partners,

The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club is preparing to distribute the funds it will raise from our upcoming Cheers for Charity fundraiser to organizations aiding women and children in need throughout the greater Joliet community.

Since 1958, members of the Joliet Junior Woman’s Club have donated countless hours assisting those in need through their service and fundraising efforts. You play an important role in helping us achieve our mission.

The Joliet Junior Woman’s Club is pleased to offer you the opportunity to submit a 2021 Funding Proposal Request. In order for your request to be reviewed, please return the completed form no later than March 17, 2021. Decisions regarding funding requests will be communicated to organizations in April.

In the past, we have raised funds through our Cause for Celebration events such as Witches Ball and Mardi Gras. After we have raised funds, we have distributed them to area organizations. This year, we are choosing the organization first so that we can promote the organization in our advertisements for Cheers for Charity. If your organization is chosen to
receive funding, we ask that you work with us to help promote our upcoming Cheers for Charity fundraiser.

In addition to funding requests, 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 2021-2022 Service Project Request following the above guidelines. Potential
service projects would take place between August 2021 and May 2022. All requests will be reviewed by our President in June; you will be contacted by a board chairperson after August 1, 2021 if your project will be adopted.

Completed requests will be accepted via email at the following address:

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
Best Regards,
Katherine Gulas
