Each year, the Junior Service League of Grand Junction gives out funds raised through Viva el Vino and cookbook sales to various non-profit organizations in Mesa County. Our grant application is generally available the beginning of July and the application period closes towards mid-August.  The Community Giving Committee then meets in August and September to determine which organizations will receive funding.  There are many worthy organizations in Mesa County, and the Community Giving Committee is always tasked with making difficult decisions. We have developed a grant rating criteria system to help the committee make informed and equitable decisions.  After the selection process, JSL provides the chosen grant recipients with funds in December.  All funds awarded through the grant program must be used in Mesa County within one calendar year.  To see some of our past grant recipients, click here.
