Apply to be a Community Partner

Each year, JLN identifies non-profit partners that will comprise the majority of its Community Program for the following year. Selected partners will receive trained JLN volunteers and/or funding during the upcoming fiscal year (June-May).


After a thoughtful evaluation process in 2022, JLN will shift its volunteer support and funding to two Focus Areas beginning in June 2023: Alleviating Poverty and Improving Childhood Literacy. Through strategic partnerships, the League looks forward to making strides towards addressing outcomes in these areas and has committed to remaining in these focus areas through the 2027-2028 League Year.


Applications may be submitted between November and December each year. Applications will be posted here closer to the application date.


For questions about the Community Partner process or to be added to a contact list for next year’s application, please call JLN Headquarters at 615-269-9393 and ask to leave a message for Catherine Price.
