SHORT HILLS, NJ – The Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills, Inc. (JLOSH) invites local non-profit organizations to apply for a Community Grant for 2016 - 2017.  We are pleased to be able to offer grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.  Grant recipients will be announced in Spring 2017. 

The grants will be awarded to qualifying organizations whose programs further JLOSH’s new "Fill the Need Initiative". This initiative focuses on addressing the basic needs of low-income children in our service area through community work dedicated to closing the gap on food insecurity, school supply gaps, essential clothing and basic hygiene needs of school-aged (PreK – 8th grade) children living in poverty. We believe that when these basic needs are met, together we can help low-income children focus their energy on succeeding in school and building a more secure future.  Grants will be awarded only to “Fill the Need Initiative” programs that target the communities in JLOSH’s service area which includes East Orange, Livingston, Maplewood, Millburn, Orange, Short Hills, South Orange, Springfield and West Orange. 

Non-profit organizations interested in applying for a JLOSH Community Grant are invited to visit the League's website, www.JLOSH.org, to be directed to our online application starting on October 14, 2016.  The grant application must be completed no later than Friday, Dec. 16th, 2016, at 5:00PM.  Questions regarding the grant application or selection process should be directed to Ms. Frances Longo, JLOSH Grant Evaluation Committee Chair, at 973-379-9655 or by email at jloshgrants@gmail.com
