The Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) is pleased to announce the opening of its Community Grants process for 2018-2019.
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.
