The JLC Centennial Campaign has come to an end! We will still be collecting pledge payments through May of 2028.
Our final total for the campaign was $613,012! Congratulations to all who helped!
Our campaign raised funds for 4 distinct areas:
- Membership Training – Funds raised will enhance training, allow for an online curriculum module to be developed for leaders, and more AJLI leadership training tracks to be offered to JLC members
- Community Projects – Contributions will ensure our Bridging the G.A.P. project will successfully be built out and thrive, and will help with additional new project incubation over the years
- Kelton House – Investing in the Kelton House as our greatest physical asset improves the rental, business, and membership experience. Investments here will be used for needed capital and operating expenses like renovating the Carriage House and basement, bathrooms, and kitchen
- JLC Endowment – Our increased Endowment will strengthen our financial foundation to allow for more mission based spending, better training programs, and greater membership sustainability
