Improving the Community

-mn8lsOclLKBNvF29tTgLiqnesYJ1rkVvqG5XONyr4U

The Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County members are devoted to making the community a much better place to live, by being a resource for this area’s non-profit organizations. This year, active League members will each work with a local non-profit agency, through a done-in-a-day project.  Organizations who benefit through our volunteers include; Challenged Child and Friends, the Good News Community Health Center, Gateway House, the Edmondson-Telford Center for Children, Eagle Ranch, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County, as well as many others.

jl 2Additionally, the League reserves a percentage of monies raised from each fundraiser and every 5 years we are able to provide a Signature Grant to a deserving non-profit agency or major League project. The first Signature Grant of $30,000 was awarded to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County in 2000-2001.  In 2005-2006, the League awarded Sonrise Camp $50,000.  In 2010-2011, a third Signature Grant of $50,000 was awarded to Gateway Domestic Violence Center for its Transitional Housing Project.

If you are a local nonprofit, and you’d like your project to be considered for a Done In a Day project, please contact us.
