The Junior League of Gainesville is pleased to announce the creation of an Annual Fund. This fund is used to directly support our mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the Gainesville community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Gifts to the Junior League of Gainesville make an impact on the lives of women and our community.
The Annual Fund
- The Junior League of Gainesville’s Annual Fund provides financial support to community partners and JLG signature programs:
- Read with Me provides kindergartners with personal libraries every year! In the past four years, thousands of books have been handed out to children in Alachua County.
- The Thrift Shop provides clothing and house ware goods to over 65 community agencies and schools, giving families access to gently used clothing in their time of need.
- Kids in the Kitchen engages children in the preparation of health meals and snacks, as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. Last year over 450 families attended their events!
- Miracle on Main Street (MOMS) invites local families in need the opportunity to shop for the holidays, where they can choose toys and gifts free of charge.
- Enables the JLG to recruit and retain members (50-60 new members a year!)
- Creates opportunities for women to attend training series, national conferences, and webinars
