The Junior League of Fort Collins is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
Chartered in 1964 as the Ft. Collins Junior Women's Club (JWC). JWC was a member of the Colorado Federation of Women's Clubs (CFWC) and the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), an international non-profit volunteer women's organization. In 1984, JWC resigned from the GFWC and began a two-year transition period to affiliate with the Association of Junior Leagues.
In April 1986, we were accepted into the Association of Junior Leagues in as the 266th league. The name and international affiliation have changed but the commitment to volunteering and the dedication to continually improving the quality of life in Fort Collins remains unchanged.
The JLFC membership voted at the end of the 2016-2017 membership year, to establish an endowment with the help of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. We currently are working on the details and expect to have them completed soon.
As a part of this membership vote, members also approved JLFC being a "Mission Sponsor" for WomenGive during 2017-2018. This will involve providing scholarships and other services to WomenGive recipients, as well as promoting JLFC and WomenGive at a number of events during the year.
"I wanted to say thank you so much for your help! I was a massage therapist and only wore workout clothes, basically! Now I have a job doing Outside Sales for a web company in Fort Collins and the clothing that I got during my hour at the Career Closet helped me close the deal and get the job! Thank you again for everything you do! I really appreciate you!" - Amy Williams
