Grants

2020 Grant Applications will be open in March.

The Junior League of Reno established a Community Enrichment Fund in 1993 to respond to requests for small grants from local nonprofit organizations for financial assistance. Providing grants to other local organizations allows the Junior League of Reno one more opportunity to further its community involvement.
