The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, awards grants for financial assistance to community agencies in the five county Kansas City metropolitan area (Jackson, Clay, and Platte counties in Missouri; Wyandotte and Johnson counties in Kansas) 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.
- The maximum grant is $7,500.
- Grant requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis, based on availability of funds.
- We have a rolling review process that typically awards grants every other month.
“The freezer that was replaced was old and no longer dependable. Recently, we had to turn away 12 cases of donated meat that we could have given to the families we serve. That is when we turned to the Junior League for help. Thank you for your quick response to our urgent need.”
