Community Impact Grants
Applications Now Being Accepted
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.
Priority is given to organizations whose projects directly benefit the lives of women and children within Johnston County.
The Community Impact Grant application period for the 2021-2022 league year has begun.
Applications are due via email no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 5, 2021.
Applicants will be notified regarding CIG funding by January 24, 2022. Funds will be awarded at our annual Big Night Out fundraiser gala, which will be held on May 22, 2022.
