Annual Fund

The Junior League of DeKalb County's Annual Fund sustains and grows the League’s programs and ultimately helps make our community a better place.  The yearly campaign  provides DeKalb County community stakeholders with an opportunity to support the League’s programs with a charitable financial contribution.

Donations to the League during the Georgia Gives Day campaign will benefit the Annual Fund.

Other Annual Fund donations are accepted online or by mailing to Junior League of DeKalb County, Attn: Annual Fund, P.O. Box 1106, Decatur, GA, 30031.

Since the inception of the League in 1934, the Annual Fund has supported many community projects, including:

    • The DeKalb Rape Crisis Center. The Center, whose name would later change to theDay League, would become the League’s signature project.
    • Elementary school teachers in DeKalb County through the award of almost $200,000 in mini-grants.
    • The International Women's House (IWH), a shelter for battered women not from the United States.
    • The restoration and preservation of the Mary Gay House, a historic antebellum home which was renovated and moved to Adair Park in 1980. 

All gifts are tax deductible and may be designated in honor or memory of someone special. A gift to the Annual Fund is a great way to say thank you, remember a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion. JLD will send a special letter to the person you designate on your donor form and publish the recognition on our website.
