Junior League of Morristown Accepting Community Grant Applications


MORRIS COUNTY — The Junior League of Morristown (JLM) accepts grant applications from community non-profit organizations in greater Morris and Somerset counties from Sunday, January 1, to Tuesday, January 31.

The JLM Grant Program provides community grant awards to non-profit community organizations to support projects consistent with the league’s mission, vision, and impact area.

The league’s mission is to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and improve communities through trained volunteers. Its vision is for women to be catalysts for community change, and the impact area is to address the unmet needs of teens.
