Community Outreach Endowment Fund

In 1989, Junior League of Wichita established the Community Outreach Endowment Fund with the sole purpose of addressing urgent, non-volunteer needs of area nonprofits in an efficient manner. Its purpose remains the same today. Junior League of Wichita’s endowment fund grants are just one of the many ways Junior League of Wichita is making a difference in the Wichita community. 

Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis and may currently be submitted for up to $8,000, however requests exceeding $2,000 require a two-thirds vote to approve by active JLW members at a general meeting.

For potential grantees seeking guidelines on submitting a grant application to JLW’s Community Outreach Endowment fund, please visit our Community Outreach Endowment page.
