President's Message

Welcome to the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale's website. We thank you for your visit. We are a non-profit organization of over 500 trained women volunteers. In 2017, we will celebrate 80 years our members have been dedicated to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community.

The Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale has a rich history of identifying unmet needs in our community, developing programs with impactful outcomes, and forming community partnerships to achieve our goals. After years of research, project development and working with our community partners, in 2014 our members officially selected human trafficking awareness as our new focus area. In collaboration with other

We are proud to have founded several of Broward County's top charitable organizations, including Jack and Jill Children's Center, Henderson Behavioral Health, the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, the Museum of Discovery and Science, Kids in Distress, SOS Children's Village, Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center, Family Central and the FLITE Center to name a few. We are truly grateful for all of our members, sponsors and partners, whose generous support helped make these accomplishments possible.

Our 17th Annual Riverwalk Run is April 1, 2017. The Riverwalk Race Party is always a wonderful evening, all while raising funds for the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale. There are some wonderful opportunities to get involved with these fundraisers and community events.

Please take a moment to read about our history and community impact. We invite you to attend our upcoming fundraisers, consider becoming a member or help support our organization.

 

Sincerely,
