Program Development: Request for Proposals

Dear Community Members, Partners and Neighbors,

The Junior League of Cincinnati (JLC) invites you to submit an application for partnership and funding. We have a long history of partnering with and creating non-profit organizations in the Cincinnati area to address community needs. We hope you will consider whether you have a project opportunity the JLC can help to realize. Based on the Cincinnati community’s needs and the Junior League’s experience, we are seeking your ideas for creating a positive impact within the following areas:

  • Lack of Basic Needs (housing, food, transportation, education, etc.)
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

The JLC will provide trained volunteers and seed funding for a period of three years to a local organization and project aligned to the JLC mission. This funding series is not intended to be used as Covid-19 relief funding, but instead should go directly to supporting the selected project.

We aim to co-create an active, visible and impactful project that is unique to the JLC partnership with our chosen organization. More information can be found in the Information Packet and Phase 1 online application, along with details regarding selection criteria and budget. 

The JLC takes on a new partnership project once every three years, so we look forward to reviewing your submission! If you do not have a relevant project at this time, we would appreciate your help in spreading the word! We understand this is a challenging time to consider taking on a new partner and we appreciate your consideration! Please share this opportunity with your colleagues and stakeholders.

If you have any questions, please contact our Program Development committee at
