Community Grants

The Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) will release the timeline for our 2021 grant cycle after October 1, 2020.

JLCC is focusing on grants that support an innovative approach to solving the social challenges of economic insecurity or family violence. We are looking for creative, world-changing ideas that enable the agency to better serve its clientele, collaborate with cross-sector organizations, capitalize on efficiencies, and, of course, make a significant impact.

We have moved to a letter of intent (LOI) process to make it easier for you to communicate your creative, outside-the-box ideas.
