Community Impact Grants
The Junior Women's League of Smithfield is pleased to be able to offer Community Impact Grants funded by our signature fundraisers, Big Night Out and Touch-A-Truck! These grants allow JWL to appropriate monies in a flexible manner to nonprofit community agencies that render services within Johnston County.
We are currently accepting applications for Community Impact Grant recipients for the 2020-2021 league year.
Priority is given to organizations whose projects directly benefit the lives of women and children within Johnston County.
CIG applications need to be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday. November 16, 2020.
Agencies will be notified regarding CIG funding by January 24, 2021 and will be awarded at our Big Night Out fundraiser event in the spring or our Touch-A-Truck fundraiser event in the fall of 2021.
