The Junior League of Indianapolis Trust Fund was established in 1929 to ensure the work of the first Junior League service project at James Whitcomb Riley Hospital would continue to draw financial support when the volunteer contract expired.
The Trust was created to allow interest to be given to the Occupational Therapy Department of the hospital. As the Trust grew, donations expanded beyond the hospital to include more organizations serving children with disabilities.
The Trust Fund account will continue to fulfill the purposes of the original agreement, to serve mentally and/or physically disabled children in Marion County. G rant awards will be determined by the Grants Committee of the Junior League of Indianapolis. For more information and instructions about how to apply, please read Trust Fund Grants.
