Community Endowment Fund


The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, awards grants for financial assistance to community agencies in the greater Kansas City area in response to critical needs. These needs may include, but are not limited to, unbudgeted expenses, sudden loss of funding, or a new program. Some examples of past funded grants are an air conditioning failure, bed bug problems in a homeless shelter and weather disaster damage.
