The Junior League of New Orleans has awarded more than $313,000 in grants to organizations through its Community Assistance Fund (CAF) program since 2007. This year, JLNO awarded $39,916 to five nonprofit organizations. JLNO’s CAF program enables the League to grant money to area nonprofit organizations which effectively demonstrate a need for funding and seek to advance JLNO’s focus area of Advancing the Wellbeing of  Women. This year, the Ellis Marsallis Center for Music, Luke’s House, New Orleans Council on Aging, Ochsner Clinic Foundation and the YMCA received CAF grants.

“JLNO is committed to Advancing the Wellbeing of  Women in Metropolitan New Orleans,” said JLNO President Shannon McCloskey Able. “We are excited to enhance the work of these worthy organizations through our CAF grants and look forward to the positive impact they will have on our community.”
