Community Assistance Grant

The Junior League of Hampton Roads is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Part of our mission includes a Community Assistance Grant to support non-profits doing work that improved lives in our community.


Our 2023 application is currently closed.


Established in 1980, we have awarded over $187,000 to 200 organizations in the past 40 years.


The Community Assistance Grant ranges from $500 – $4,000 and is open to all 501(c)3 non-profit organizations that serve the following communities: Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, York County, Williamsburg, James City County, Isle of Wight, Smithfield, and Gloucester.  Grant recipients will be notified mid-April via e-mail and will be invited to attend our end-of-the-year banquet in mid-May of each year.
