COVID-19 Response Fund

Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted by COVID-19 and, now more than ever, it’s important for us to be united in community and remain in service to each other. The Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region leaders are approaching this continuously evolving situation with focus and utmost care in order to provide support for our members and community.

Even though COVID-19 has dramatically changed the Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region’s service delivery model, our commitment to the community remains the same. We are shifting funds to help support our community and those struggling during the pandemic and have a $10,000 COVID-19 Fund available for small businesses and nonprofits. Entities are encouraged to submit an application to request COVID-19 funds.

The response fund was created to provide resources to organizations/entities in the Great Lakes Bay Region to help support our community during this uncertain time. For over 85 years, the Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region has been committed to developing the potential of women and improving communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
