Since 1991, the JLHR has budgeted for and disbursed small, one-time grants to organizations, individuals, or families who have a pressing, urgent need.
During the 2018-2019 League year, the League disbursed $2,000 in funds to the following:
- Boys and Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula – in honor of Jim Warner
- Tarrant Middle School – in support of their Restorative Justice program
- Donate Life America – the Meredith Fox Memorial Fund
- Williamsburg Co-Operative Preschool – to help with damage to their playground from a hurricane
- Three individuals:
- A woman with outstanding medical bills due to abuse suffered in a relationship
- A scholarship applicant who was not eligible for our award due to location but who inspired us
- A student who attended a youth leadership conference who has plans to change the world for the better
Do you know of an organization, individual or family who could use immediate funds? Please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Board of Directors meets monthly to consider these community needs.
