All of its proceeds go to support the mission and vision of JLSA which supports more than 60 non-profits annually by providing volunteers and necessary funding. From our founding in 1924, the Junior League of San Antonio, Inc. has instilled in its members a deeply felt duty to engage in voluntarism, women's leadership, and meaningful community impact. It is our understanding that women who unite with a common purpose and strong commitments can build better communities.

 

Many of the community agencies we partner with serve San Antonio's most vulnerable citizens. The important work of the Junior League requires ongoing support. The mission of the Junior League is funded through revenue generated by the generosity of our members, donors, businesses, and corporations. Gifts to JLSA empower us as an organization to recruit new members, develop strong training, and offer a broad range of volunteer opportunities in the community.

 

Ultimately, a gift to JLSA represents faith in our mission and a belief that our community benefits from the actions of trained volunteers. In addition to giving, participating in Junior League fundraisers is a great avenue for businesses and corporations to get involved in fun, targeted activities designed to generate significant proceeds for the Junior League's mission and operating budget.

 

OUR MISSION The Junior League of San Antonio, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

 

VISION STATEMENT We are a community of women realizing and cultivating our gifts, passion and purpose. We will advance San Antonio through bold female leadership in positions of responsibility and influence.
