Community Impact

The Junior League of Greenville, Inc. was founded in 1929 by a group of 20 women with a passionate for serving the Greenville community. Today, we are a vibrant group of over 1,200 women who are still passionate about volunteering and helping to make our community an even better place.

The League has been an integral part in contributing to the founding of several significant community organizations including the Peace Center for the Performing Arts, Pendleton Place for Children and Families, The Children’s Museum of the Upstate and the Warehouse Theatre.

Additionally, the League has supported more than 300 different agencies, awarded nearly $3 million dollar in grants, and provided countless hours of volunteer service during our 90 year history.

Our current Community Impact strategy can be summarized by our Focus Statement:

The Junior League of Greenville, Inc. engages in initiatives that help women in our community overcome barriers, focusing on Human Trafficking and Economic Mobility.

Taking a service-centered approach and aligning our resources, the Junior League is activating this strategy through the following Committees:
