Each year, The Junior League of Victoria, Texas, Inc. (or JLV), awards Community Assistance Funds (or CAF grants) to non-profit organizations in the Victoria community that meet the League's funding focus of promoting efforts to ensure that children and families have the opportunities necessary for physical, intellectual, emotional, mental, and economic well-being, as well as social growth. 

CAF Grants are typically awarded in amounts up to $1,000.  However, JLV member-sponsored CAF Grant applications may be awarded in amounts up to $1,500.  In order to apply for a JLV member-sponsored CAF Grant, an organization must have a sponsor who is currently an Active or Sustaining Member within JLV and is also an active volunteer within the applicant’s organization.

Grants are made only to exempt organizations qualified under IRS Code 501(c)(3) and must be used for charitable, literary or educational purposes in accordance with IRS 501(c)(3) guidelines.  Grants to organizations with a fiscal sponsor that is a qualified 501(c)3 organization will also be considered.  Grants will not be given to individuals.  Requests for the following will not be considered:  (1) donations for annual fundraisers, (2) events that have already happened, and (4) organizations practicing discrimination.  All grant funds must be expended for exempt purposes within Victoria County.

To be eligible for funding, an organization must submit the following:

  1. Completed grant application form

  2. Supporting documents:

Attachment A:  IRS Determination Letter (or application for 501c(3) status, if pending)

Attachment B:  Most Recent Form 990

Attachment C:  Organization’s Current Operating Budget

Attachment D:  Project Budget

All grant application forms and supporting documents must be typed and submitted electronically to jlvcafgrants@gmail.com no later than February 22, 2022.  Late applications will not be accepted.

If you have questions, please contact our JLV Community Vice President, Brittany Rodriguez, at (214) 924-7889 or jlvcafgrants@gmail.com.

Family Holiday Meals in partnership with Foster Parents of Victoria
 

Over the past few years, research and needs identification has shown us that food insecurity is an impact area for our community, so the JLV Community Impact Projects Committee is making that insecurity their focus this League year.

In an effort to bridge the gap, we are partnering with one of our 2020 - 2021 CAF grant recipients, Foster Parents of Victoria, to raise money to put together holiday meal baskets. Our goal is to feed approximately 140 people that make up 35 local foster families this Christmas season.

For just $40, we will be able to feed a family of 6 and you can help us meet that goal! 

We will be accepting monetary donations until November 26, 2021. Please visit jlvtx.ejoinme.org/FPV to make a contribution. Your generosity and continued support are greatly appreciated. 

If you would like to give in any other capacity, please contact our JLV Community Vice President, Brittany Rodriguez at jlvcafgrants@gmail.com.
