The Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills, Inc. (JLOSH) invites local non-profit organizations to apply for a Community Grant for 2017-2018. We are pleased to be able to offer grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Grant recipients will be announced in Spring 2018.

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 joint 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 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 16, 2017. The grant application must be completed no later than Friday, Dec. 15th, 2017, at 5:00 p.m.  Questions regarding the grant application or selection process should be directed to Ms. Mukta Bhatia, JLOSH Grant Evaluation Committee Chair at 973-379-9655, on her mobile at 551-580-1182, or by email at jloshgrants@gmail.com.
