COMMEMORATION, CELEBRATION AND COMMITMENT
The League Club was founded in 1986 in Naples, Florida
Founded in 1986 with the knowledge of the Association of Junior Leagues International, the initial objective of the women who founded the Club was for members to socialize with one another. Ninety-eight women attended the first meeting held at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Resort. In its first year, The Club became incorporated, established bylaws and applied for tax-exempt status. Husbands of members organized The minor League, which has sponsored many social events and has made generous contributions to The League Club's Community Trust Fund.
The League Club established The Volunteer Center of Collier County to coordinate volunteers with various non-profit agencies seeking assistance. It was funded with money raised from fashion shows. By 1990, The Volunteer Center was operating independently. This propelled The League Club into its current status as a grant giving organization orchestrated by the Community Involvement Committee.
League Club women have also contributed thousands of volunteer hours in various areas. Members have served on numerous agency boards, worked in childcare and adult centers, with the illiterate and homeless, in conservation and arts groups and in churches. By focusing on our goals of fellowship, education, volunteerism and philanthropy, The League Club continues to be a vibrant part of the Naples community.
