Grants

Over $5.8 Million in Philanthropic Giving Since 1987

On April 8, 2022, grants totaling $429,325 were awarded to 24 area nonprofits by The League Club.  With these grants, The League Club continues to address crucial recovery needs due to the severe impact of the COVID-19 crisis.  As life began to return to some semblance of normalcy, there was strong evidence that the pandemic had created grave mental health issues affecting each of The League Club focus areas: health, education, the arts and our environment.  Therefore, for this grant cycle, special consideration was given to projects that address mental illness and the emotional hardships this crisis has brought on the most vulnerable of adults, children and the elderly in our community. 

The League Club also celebrated its 35th Anniversary with an additonal $35,000 arts grant to Lighthouse of Collier County.  Our total grant distribution for the year is $464,325.
