Junior League of Columbia

Donate to the JLC

The Junior League of Columbia (JLC) has a long history of making a difference in the lives of people of the Midlands. As a nonprofit organization, we rely upon support from the community to continue our mission of improving the health and well-being of children and families in the community.

The JLC has various avenues in which you can give. Together we can build a partnership for a better community.

Annual Fund

The mission of the Annual Fund is to establish an unrestricted fund to assist in the mission and vision of the JLC.  Increasing our community impact, touching more lives, and training more volunteers are all included in the mission, and with your donation, the JLC can make a greater impact and strengthen our community.

Endowment Fund

The JLC Endowment Fund has been established with the Central Carolina Community Foundation to guarantee that the vision and commitment of the League remain strong both now and in the future. An endowment is a sum of money invested, the returns of which benefit an organization in perpetuity.

There are several ways to make gifts to the Endowment Fund, including marketable securities, cash, checks, closely held securities, and real estate. Gifts may be made outright or through an estate plan or other planned gift.
