Abstract

The Junior League of Charlotte (JLC) was founded in 1926 by 30 women with the goal of encouraging young women to improve their communities through civic engagement. Members of JLC contribute both their time and financial resources to various community agencies and their projects to help meet the critical needs of the communities they serve. The organization also seeks to empower women by providing training opportunities to further develop their members’ professional and leadership skills. The Legacy Foundation was established in 2007 to ensure the continued support and growth of financial sustainability of the JLC. This collection contains JLC annual reports and directories dated 1926-1972.
