Junior League of Austin Hosting Community Project Orientation
The Junior League of Austin will soon be accepting applications from local non-profit organizations interested in partnering with the League. If you're not familiar you can learn more about the League here - but the group partners with other non-profits to provide volunteers and sometimes grant funding for various service projects each year.
Here's some information that I've pulled from the League's website where you can apply and learn more. I've also added the upcoming Community Project Orientation to the PINK GRANITE Event Calendar.
Apply to be a Project
Non-profits must apply to become a Community Project. Applications may be for volunteers alone or for volunteers and accompanying funds (but not just for funding).

The next Community Project Orientation will be August 8, 2017. Check in 9:00 a.m. and Orientation 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. at THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF AUSTIN.
