IMPACT Project Form

Thank you for reaching out to the Junior League of Tulsa (“JLT”) to request an IMPACT project. We are excited to review your agency’s project needs and wanted to share the following guidelines regarding project application, selection, and other considerations. 

  • We welcome applications from all organizations, but ask you share proof of your status as a 501(c)3 organization in the state of Oklahoma. If you do not have that status in Oklahoma, please provide a short explanation as to why.
  • We welcome IMPACT applications from JLT members who have identified a need for a supply drive or service project because of their on-going involvement in the community. Because of this, if you are applying for an IMPACT project because you would like to involve other League members in a service or drive opportunity for another non-profit and do not possess proof of that non-profit’s 501(c)3 status (or do not need it, depending on the supply drive), please check the appropriate box and complete all agency information with yourself listed as the contact. 
  • Junior League of Tulsa IMPACT projects are intended to provide project, not fundraising support. In the past, JLT has been asked to provide volunteers to staff fundraising events. This is not the intended purpose of IMPACT projects; assistance with fundraisers is evaluated on a case-by-case basis and those needing additional staff for a fundraiser must meet the following criteria:
    • Status as a current or previous JLT partner;
    • Demonstrate they have already recruited and secured volunteers from their agency volunteer base; and
    • Have clear, set volunteer shifts established so JLT members do not get pulled into other event needs and/or their time is used in a way that best benefits the agency and JLT member experience.
  • The Junior League of Tulsa will only accept a small number of fundraiser assistance requests each year and preference is given to projects with event set up needs.
  • Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Junior League of Tulsa is exercising caution in engaging in community, in-person service projects and events. JLT wants to ensure community partners, their clients and volunteers, its members, and the Tulsa community stay safe and healthy during this time. Because of that, until COVID-19 numbers are consistently declining and JLT is operating in Phase 3 of its’ COVID-19 Guidelines, JLT may not be able to perform every requested IMPACT project. The IMPACT project chair or vice chair will communicate with the agency accordingly when or if JLT is unable to meet a request due to COVID-19.
  • As the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing, an increase in community spread or other circumstances may cause a change in JLT’s previously stated ability to assist with an IMPACT project. JLT seeks to meet the needs of the community, especially during this uncertain time, and will communicate with upcoming projects as infection rates change in case there is a need to postpone, adjust, or cancel the originally requested project. If a cancellation of a previously agreed upon project is necessary, JLT will provide the requesting agency with notice seven working days in advance. 

Should you have any additional questions about the above guidelines, please feel free to contact the IMPACT project chair, Juell Homco at impact@jltulsa.org and Community Programs VP, Maggie Shaffer-Den Harder at mtdenharder@gmail.com.
