Centennial Grants

In honor of the Junior League of Atlanta’s Centennial year, the board of directors and the general membership will award a total of $1M in grants to local nonprofits as a way to celebrate the last 100 years and kick off our next 100 years of service to the Atlanta community.  This will be a one-time, transformational gift, prioritizing collaboration and innovation, which has a unique capacity to dramatically impact a nonprofit’s work and will profoundly advance the future of the organization, its constituents, the Junior League of Atlanta and the community.

On August 5, we hosted a Design Thinking webinar, in partnership with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, for nonprofit executive and development staff to introduce The Junior League of Atlanta’s Centennial Grants goals and proposal design process. We have provided a link to the recorded webinar for anyone who was unable to attend the webinar or who would like a refresher.
