Since 1924, the Junior League of Colorado Springs has had a tradition of improving the Colorado Springs community by developing women leaders, supporting youth and family causes, and founding new organizations that address important community needs.
The JLCS organizes and manages several fundraisers throughout the year. The commitment to our community would not be complete without financial support through our fundraising activities. We invite the community and our membership to support the mission of the JLCS.
Two of our featured and consistent fundraisers include our Touch-A-Truck weekend event and the Little Black Dress Initiative.
Our annual fundraisers include:
- Annual Giving Campaign
- Little Black Dress Initiative
- Fostering Change Raffle
- Kentucky Derby Party
JLCS also has other ways that league members, community members and those individuals or organizations invested in our mission can support us financially. They are listed below.

Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.

The Endowment Fund
The Endowment Fund was established in 1986 as a separate investment for the Junior League of Colorado Springs with the purpose of providing a perpetual source of revenue. A contribution to the Endowment Fund is a gift that grows, the principal is invested, while the interest income provides an ongoing source of financial support for the JLCS.
