Junior League of Peoria

Our women are the force that makes change happen.

The work we do, the leadership we provide is life changing to individual members and our community. Our voice is an opportunity to own that position.

Big picture

COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 situation around the world is evolving at a fast pace. Through working remotely, social distancing and our cancelled Frolic with the Fairies fundraiser, our mission at JLP remains strong.

We've compiled our community efforts during this crisis online and will continue to contribute to this list during this period. Together, we got this.

Please continue to set the example for our community and we look forward to seeing your faces again soon!

Annual Giving Campaign

We hear it a lot: Donate to JLP’s Annual Giving Campaign! But why does it matter?

Here’s the official reason: The Annual Giving Campaign is key to helping Junior League of Peoria meet our ongoing commitment to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Like all nonprofits, our budget revenues – Frolic with the Fairies, Little Black Dress Initiative, sponsorships, JLP member dues – are not enough to cover our entire budget. That’s where we turn to Annual Giving, with a goal of 100 percent participation from our membership.

We all give our time and talent to JLP. Your donation of as little as $10 to the Annual Giving Campaign will move us toward our 2020-21 goals.

Each donation to the Annual Giving Campaign means that you:

  • Support community engagement through programs like Kids in the Kitchen
  • Enable JLP to recruit and retain talented members
  • Offer training and leadership development opportunities
  • Provide essential support for operations
  • Commit to the future of our organization


  • Write a check to Junior League of Peoria, indicating “Annual Giving” in the memo, and mail to headquarters
  • Donate online
  • Pay by credit card by calling Headquarters, Gwen Sutter or Laura Presley
  • Ask your employer to match your donation to JLP’s Annual Giving Campaign


From now until April 30, make your Annual Fund donation and be entered to win a gift card to a local business!

Record Your Volunteer Points

The work we have done in the Peoria community could not be done without you. It's important to record your JLP volunteer and meeting hours. The data collected from this form can be used in many ways, such as allowing us to apply for much needed grants, boost our community presence, who might be a good fit for a leadership position, and enables us to track trends.

Review and record your volunteer points before the May GMM!
