1933 Society

This year the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier, Inc. will be celebrating our 85th year.  As we enter the 85th year of the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier, Inc., we are excited to continue and grow our annual campaign, the 1933 Society. Why 1933? The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier first incorporated and joined the Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. in 1933. We have been around for 84 years and we are still going strong. In those 84 years, 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.

What is the 1933 Society?  The 1933 Society is our annual campaign that was started last year to provide our supporters with a more structured way to support the League.  Last year, the campaign raised over $20,000!  With your help, we plan to exceed that amount this year.  We have three levels of giving to the 1933 Society – League Leader, League Advocate, and League Partner – see below for the benefits associated with each.

How does your investment in the 1933 Society help continue our legacy?  For 84 years, 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.  We provide invaluable training to our members where they are provided a safe place to strengthen existing talents and develop new skills.  Our volunteers use the training they receive to make a long lasting impact by becoming community and civic leaders.  Our training is what sets apart from other organizations and ensures that your investment will not just benefit our League in the coming 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 community projects.  Our trained volunteers collectively donate approximately 4,000 hours of direct community service in our community each year.  By joining the 1933 Society, you will help support projects like MAGIC (Mentoring Ambitious Girls to Inspire Change), Kids in the Kitchen, Bingo at University Health, Health Literacy, Super Safety Saturday (Touch a Truck) and Safe Sitter.

Thank you for your continued support of our League. With your support and investment, we can continue to improve our community by promoting voluntarism and developing the potential of women in our 85th year and beyond!
