Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,500 to Louisiana nonprofit organizations in eligible communities to benefit local women and children. Funding is intended to assist organizations working to improve the quality of life for women and children. Proposals must align with the community impact focus area of education and mentorship of safety and life skills for women and children. Eligible organizations serve residents in Alexandria.

​The Grants Program’s exclusive goal is to support other nonprofit organizations in the community that are working in the League’s focus area by awarding them direct financial assistance. A unique aspect of this grant program is that there are no categorical restrictions on the use of the money.

JLA has afforded the grant committee the liberty to consider proposals for any legitimate need in addressing women’s and children’s issues–administrative, direct care, and all things in between. In receiving detailed narratives of other community efforts, the League is better able to keep its finger on the pulse of these issues. Not only interesting and impressive, but these proposals also foster networking and information exchange opportunities that are vital to working efficiently and effectively.
