1933 Society

This year, the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier, Inc. is celebrating its 87th year!  Since 1933, we have stayed true to our mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. We also enjoy a special community-wide legacy that you, our valued members, have both participated in and helped to create.  We are excited to continue our annual campaign, the 1933 Society.

What is the 1933 Society?  The 1933 Society is our annual campaign to provide our generous supporters a more structured way to donate to the League by joining at one of three levels of the 1933 Society – League Leader, League Advocate, or League Partner. Please see the reverse of this letter for the benefits of each level.  This year, we will be celebrating the 1933 Society and its members at the home of Sustainer Advisor Jodi Penn Rives on January 23, 2020, with special guest Olivia Thomas, AJLI Treasurer.  It will be a fun-filled evening of catching up and reminiscing with old friends and making new ones while toasting the League and its supporters.

How does your investment in the 1933 Society help continue our legacy?  For the last eight decades, the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier has been a positive force for change in our community. Our League’s largest contribution is in improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  The invaluable training received by our members strengthens existing talents and develops new skills.  In turn, our volunteers use this training to make a long-lasting impact on our community by becoming leaders like you.  Our training is what sets us apart from other organizations and ensures that your investment will not just benefit our League this year, but will make a lasting impact on our community for many years to come.

Your investment will also allow us to continue and improve our six impactful community projects:  MAGIC (Mentoring Ambitious Girls to Inspire Change), Revel Artist for a Day, Health Literacy Initiative Summer Camp, Super Safety Saturday, Red Apron Pantry and Safe Sitter.

We ask for your continued support by joining the 1933 Society for the 2019-20 League year by November 30, 2019.  In considering whether to join, we encourage you to remember the impact that the League has made on your life.  Your membership will help us to advance the League’s legacy and make an impact in our community by carrying our mission forward in our 87th year and beyond!  We cannot truly express how grateful we are for your commitment to our League and we thank you for your generosity.
