grants history

The Vision of the Junior League of Summit is that it will be a “highly respected force for targeting and impacting critical community needs.”  In keeping with this Vision, the JLS annually awards Community Grants, which are made to non-profit organizations to address demonstrated community needs that fall within the JLS focus area.

Congratulations to 2016-17 JLS grant recipients!

This year the JLS awarded over $15,047.81 across eight organizations:

Summit Area YMCA, SHIP, Summit Community Programs, SAGE Eldercare, Calvary Episcopal Church, The Connection for Women and Families, Summit Speech School, and Wallace Chapel
