About Jackson Junior Welfare League
Our Mission: "To improve the quality of life in the community through volunteer service and fund development"
Formed in 1930, the Jackson Junior Welfare League ("JJWL" or "League") is a charitable nonprofit organization, providing support to the Jackson, Michigan, community through its volunteer services and fundraising efforts. Our founders' goal to establish a base for community betterment continues more than eighty years later.
We are governed by our Board of Directors, who are, in turn, accountable to League members for the development of goals that will enhance our ability to fulfill the League Mission.
JJWL is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization. We are entirely volunteer-based, with no paid staff or employees. Our members graciously give their time and effort to JJWL. All of our programs and activities are made possible through membership dues, grants, donations, and other fund-raising efforts. You can support our work through donations, sponsorships, partnerships, and even through membership.
