JLP Annual Fund 2018-2019


WHAT is the Annual Fund?

Your Annual Fund donation supports our mission to promote voluntarism, improve the
community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers and
develop the potential of women and our focus of “Building a Healthy Arizona.” Each
dollar given to the Junior League of Phoenix through the Annual Fund is multiplied in
value by combining your donation with our trained, talented, dedicated members who
volunteer with our community partners.

WHERE does my donation go?

Your gift supports our community programs, member training opportunities and other committee expenses required to support our mission. Along the side of this page you will find some of operating expenses that are necessary to keep our League running efficiently.

WHEN can I give?

The Annual Fund fundraising year runs concurrent with our Junior League year (June 2018-May 2019). Many members make their gift to the Annual Fund when paying their dues.

WHY should I support Annual Fund?

The Junior League of Phoenix cannot make the impact we do in our community without the significant funding and support we receive from our donors. Your gift supports our mission and focus of “Building a Healthy Arizona.”

By making a gift, you enable the Junior League of Phoenix to continue our legacy. Please join your fellow community members in making an end of the year gift to the Junior League of Phoenix. All JLP Annual Fund gifts are 100% tax deductible.

HOW can I make a gift?

The easiest way to give is to donate online. You can also give via check or phone by contacting the Junior League of Phoenix headquarters at 602.234.3388.
