President's Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Indianapolis! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the League and our impact in the community.

For 95 years we have rolled up our sleeves and worked hard to build a better community. Our vision is that the Junior League of Indianapolis will be a catalyst for lasting change in the lives of children and their families in our community. From our early projects where the League worked side by side with Riley Hospital for Children to open an Occupational Therapy Clinic to today where we have members in Indianapolis Public School 67 Stephen Foster working on numerous projects including tutoring, opening a food pantry and more we live our motto of Women Building a Better Community. For 94 years when Indianapolis had a need, the Junior League answered the call and helped create and implement the solution.

Today our League has nearly 1000 members and we dedicate over 16,000 hours of uncompensated community service each year. We also match those hours of community service with dollars that we invest into community projects and through our grant making, in 2016 we are on pace to invest nearly $200,000 in our community. Our community partners for 2016-2017 include Stephen Foster Elementary and School on Wheels please check the website in the Fall for information on 2016 grant funding opportunities.

We are fortunate to have a passionate and diverse membership of women and we are proud to be part of their development in becoming leaders, visionaries and change agents of tomorrow. Our Active and Sustaining members continue to implement their JLI leadership training by serving on numerous community boards and coalitions as well as leading businesses, nonprofits and civic organizations. JLI members present and past are part of a rich legacy of leadership here in the Indianapolis community, we invite you to attend one of our upcoming membership recruitment events to learn more about membership in the League and be part of Women Building a Better Community

Yours truly, 

Michelle Study-Campbell

President, 2015-2017
