Community Assistance

Junior League of Collin County offers a multitude of ways to provide assistance to non-profits in Collin County.

Due to continued impacts from COVID-19 the Junior League of Collin County has made a difficult decision to put a hold on the Agency Assistance Fund until October 1, 2020.

Please check this page at that time for updated information on how we are serving our partners to meet critical needs in the community and for additional updates around our programming. If you have already submitted an application, we will ask that you re-submit on October 1.

Although help may look a little different right now, we remain committed to serving our community in whatever way we can. If you need volunteers, please e-mail diad@jlcollincounty.org.

For any other questions or concerns, please email the Community Impact VP at civp@jlcollincounty.org or the JLCC President at president@jlcollincounty.org. Together we will get through this!

Agency Assistance Fund

The Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) provides financial support to agencies throughout Collin County. The purpose of the Agency Assistance Fund is to allocate money to community agencies for short-term program support and/or emergency needs. If you are applying for funding, please allow at least a 90 day review cycle.

Primary Consideration and Guidelines for Funding

  1. Funds must be used for short-term program support and/or emergency needs. Funds may not be used for general operating expenses or regular monthly expenses such as salaries or utilities.
  2. Public relations opportunities should be available for the JLCC. For example, items should bear the label “provided by the Junior League of Collin County” whenever applicable.
  3. The purchase of materials or equipment must be made and distributed by the Agency, not the JLCC.
  4. Preference shall be given to:
  • Agencies whose short-term/emergency requests address critical human needs.
  • Agencies/projects facing the possibility of a temporary disruption of services.
  • Agencies who have not received Agency Assistance funds within the current fiscal year.

 

Community Grants

The Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) will release thetimeline for our 2021 grant cycle after October 1, 2020. At that time we will accept letters of intent for grants focused on solving the social challenges of economic insecurity or family violence. For more information please click here.

 

Short-Term Projects

Done In A Day projects provide quick-response or short-term project support for Collin County communities. The JLCC provides volunteer support for community projects that can be accomplished in a one-time evening or weekend effort.

When nonprofit agencies are limited in achieving their goals because of lack of volunteers, this program provides a dedicated group of JLCC volunteers to work on short-term projects. All projects meet a community need in Collin County.
