Community Assistance Grants

Junior League of Indianapolis Community Assistance Grants

Community Assistance Grants (CAGs) provide financially sound 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with monetary support to meet community needs within a current JLI focus area (currently preparing students for academic success). Unlike our Community Project partners, CAG recipients do not customarily receive volunteer support. Since 2000, more than $4,100,000 has been awarded to local nonprofits.
