For over 94 years, the Junior League of New Orleans has been a thriving organization where one woman can combine her enthusiasm with 2,200 other members to envision and execute effective and relevant voluntarism. Your donation - no matter the size - would enable us to provide more education and resources for women and families in Metropolitan New Orleans.

JLNO is committed to Advancing the Wellbeing of Women through the use of trained volunteers providing direct service, educating the community, and advocating for issues that affect women.
The positive change that has occurred in our region is immeasurable because people like you invested in our work. Your support over the years has enabled us to build resources such as The Parenting Center, the Louisiana Children's Museum, the Preservation Resource Center and our award-winning Get on Board training program.

Today, JLNO's Diaper Bank is one of the most visionary programs in our 93-year history. Programs like Diaper Bank, the Woman Entrepreneur Fellowship, and our newly established Junior League Scholarship Fund (supporting non-traditional female students), demonstrate that JLNO continues to innovate to address the critical issues facing our community. Through these projects and the 45,000 volunteer hours we work annually, JLNO continues to be an impactful philanthropic entity. This important work cannot continue without the support of our greater community.
- A donation of $50 will provide a monthly supply of diapers to a family in need.
