What is The League Club?
The League Club, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization of women in southwest Florida strengthening communities through fellowship, education, volunteerism and philanthropy for the past 30 years. The League Club is open to women who have been or still are active members of a Junior League that is a member of the Association of Junior Leagues International.
Each year The League Club produces one major fundraiser to raise funds for our Community Trust Fund from which we make grants to strengthen communities in Collier and Lee Counties. Over the past 32 years, we have awarded more than $4.5 million in grants supporting the environment, education, children and families. For a list of agencies awarded grants in 2019, please click here.
In addition to volunteering countless hours considering grant proposals, serving on the Board or other committees, League Club members also commit time to what we call Done in a Day (DIAD) direct service projects such as packing meals at food banks, serving at senior centers, wrapping Christmas gifts at the Salvation Army or St. Mathew's House.
The League Club has announced the launch of its 2019-2020 grant awards program.
Over the last three decades, the organization has provided $4.5 million in philanthropic giving. Grants were awarded on April 4th totalling $343,743 to 35 area nonprofits to support education, hunger relief and healthcare.
If you would like to apply for a grant in the upcoming cycle, please visit our Grants page for more information. The deadline is July 1, 2019.
Another part of The League Club's mission is to strengthen communities through education. TLC offers monthly membership meetings to its members featuring timely and educational programs. This years programs, for example, feature an identity theft expert, a judge, an artistic director and a conservationist. Area meetings are planned once a year where members gather in neighborhoods.
The number one reason members join The League Club is for fellowship. There are almost 600 members today who have come together in Naples through a shared culture of Junior League membership. Many members join an Interest Group to get to know people in a smaller group based on a common interest. Members also enjoy a number social occasions throughout the year. More info...
