Enabling Funds Grants

Apply for a Grant

The Junior League of San Francisco (JLSF) awards grants to San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit organizations that align with JLSF’s focus area: Bridging the gap of essential needs in the San Francisco community.

Priority will be given to organizations that face an urgent and short-term financial need. Examples of such needs may include, but are not limited to:

  • Organizations facing a sudden loss of funding
  • An unbudgeted expense
  • Organizations that are in need of bridge funding

The JLSF Enabling Funds grants (up to a maximum of $5,000 per organization) enable existing nonprofit organizations to continue to provide needed services and programs in our community.

To be eligible for a JLSF Enabling Funds Grant, organizations must:

  • Submit an Enabling Funds Grant Application and related documents.
  • Demonstrate that the specific program requiring funding aligns with JLSF’s focus area of advancing the social and emotional health of at-risk youth and elderly populations.
  • Provide verification of 501(c)(3) status.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through March 2023.
