JLM Foundation

 

The Junior League of Miami Foundation, Inc. (“The JLM Foundation”) was established as a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit entity to provide long-term, stable financing to support the Junior League of Miami (“JLM”) and community programs in the years ahead.  A gift to The JLM Foundation becomes an investment and is used to strengthen and provide long-term financial stability to the mission and community programs of the JLM.  We are very thankful for all of your generous donations!  Since 2004, The JLM Foundation has granted over $228,000.00 to the JLM.  As our Foundation donations grow, so does our yearly support to the JLM and community programs.

DONORS

Contributions of all amounts to the Junior League of Miami Foundation, Inc. are appreciated and embraced and can be named or anonymous.

There are numerous categories of cumulative gift recognition including the 1926 SOCIETY, which recognizes cumulative giving of $1,926 and above to correspond with the JLM’s founding in 1926. Donors who have reached this level and greater receive a commemorative pin in honor of their gift.

  • Developer of the Future – $50,000 and above
  • Architect of the Future – $25,000 to $49,999
  • Designer of the Future – $10,000 to $24,999

LEAGUE RECOGNITION

The Foundation donors will receive recognition by being listed in a special plaque at Junior League of Miami Headquarters.  Each year, donors who have given at the 1926 Society level and the $10,000 Designer of the Future Level or above are recognized at our annual get together and receive a commemorative pin.  Donors who designate The JLM Foundation in their estate planning documents are recognized as members of our Hope Society.  We hope that this will affirm our appreciation of those who donate as well as encourage a new donor to consider making contributions to the Foundation.
