Message from the President

presjsourkFor 80 years, the Junior League of Topeka (JLT) has been serving the needs of our community through the outstanding leadership and effective action of our trained volunteers. Since our founding in 1932, the JLT has established over 35 community service projects, awarded over $1.8 million dollars to area nonprofit organizations and contributed thousands of volunteer hours to our community. Each year, we provide critical support to community projects, programs, and partners – sharing our financial resources, expertise, and boots on the ground – to positively impact the lives of women, children, and families throughout Topeka.

Our legacy of 80 years of community service in Topeka and preparing generations of women for a lifetime of civic leadership has left an incredible positive impact on our community. Most recently, JLT members have created and established the only diaper bank in Topeka called Diaper Depot. As this project is transitioned to an organization that can sustain it for years to come, JLT membership is exploring other needs in our community to find our next sustainable project. This is just one of the many successful signature projects that JLT has led the charge on establishing which continues to make an impact in our city.

Help us celebrate our 80th Anniversary by clicking on the Donate button and making a monetary contribution of any size. Your donations help to continue our community work and provide training for our volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a member, feel free to contact me about our new member program and how you can be part of this legacy.

It is exciting to be part of the large footprint that JLT and its members (old and new) have made in our community. I am just fortunate to be a part of it!
