As most of today’s corporate leaders know, social responsibility—and sustainability—are good business, whether you’re in search of favorability with existing customers, new prospects, regulatory agencies, or in relationships with other businesses. This holds true for a partnership with The Junior League, which boasts more than a century of volunteering and leadership to improve our local communities around the world.
As we have throughout our 120 year history, we welcome inquiries from corporations, foundations, entrepreneurs, and other institutions whose values align with our Mission and who wish to collaborate with one of the world’s premier organizations of leaders. We know we cannot fulfill our Mission on our own and that it takes a tightly knit network of businesses, educators, local officials, agencies and volunteers to make lasting and meaningful change.
Junior League women are highly motivated, educated, influential individuals who transform their communities through advocacy, direct service, public education, fundraising and hard work on the front lines of modern society’s toughest problems. With comprehensive training, vast networks, and a collaborative approach to designing solutions, they step in where government or social services agencies are not fully meeting a community’s needs, whether for lack of resources, knowledge or funding.
Why partner with us?
A partnership with The Junior League is an opportunity for an organization or a foundation to collaborate with one of the world’s largest and effective associations of women in its legacy of improving communities through the work of trained volunteers who establish after-school programs, work to prevent childhood obesity, pioneer literacy initiatives, or build domestic violence shelters. In short, collaborating with The Junior League is an opportunity for civic engagement and social responsibility that visibly enhances business, brands, and corporate reputations.
