Enabling Fund

The Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region's enabling fund allows us to expedite funding in response to our community's needs and helps programs which do not qualify as a Junior League-funded project. Our recipients provide service to the community and are in harmony with the purpose of the Junior League of the Great Lakes Bay Region. We provide up to $2,500/year total or adjust if funds are awarded to two non-profit agencies.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on January 31, 2024.  If you have any questions or need more information, please email communityimpact@jlgreatlakesbay.org.
