Community Assistance Fund

Our Community Assistance Fund (CAF) assists non-profit agencies with a 501(c)(3) designation in the Baton Rouge area with specific, short-term monetary needs. The committee chooses projects that meet the guidelines set forth by our bylaws and policies and are focused on meeting the Junior League vision statement: “The Junior League of Baton Rouge will enhance the quality of life in the Baton Rouge community in the areas of physical health, education and cultural development”.

The projects funded represent the League’s commitment to our vision. The funds requests may not be: (1) related to religious, political or medical research projects; (2) used for travel budgets; (3) used for renovations in buildings not owned or in long term leases; (4) issued to a non-profit for more than 2 consecutive years; (5) issued to an entity receiving funds as an existing Junior League of Baton Rouge project; (6) granted to individuals; or (7) more than $2,500.00 (unless approved by the Junior League of Baton Rouge Board of Directors).
