DIAD – Done In A Day

Does your non-profit have a project or event in need of some helping hands? The Junior League of Savannah (JLS) is here to help through its Done in a Day (DIAD) volunteer initiative! 

The women of the Junior League of Savannah are dedicated to its mission of voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities. In addition to the on-going community projects and grants it provides, the Junior League of Savannah annually undertakes six to eight projects that are “done in a day,” usually occurring on a Saturday or Sunday. For each DIAD project, Junior League members assist local organizations through hands-on volunteer work and financial support.  

Requests must include the need for volunteers (JLS can typically provide six to twelve volunteers). Modest funding is also available (up to $500 per project) and must be used to help underwrite the costs associated with the project described in the application. Requests for funding alone will not be accepted.

The following requirements must be met for an application to be considered:

  1. The applicant organization must be a non-profit agency with 501 c(3) status. *
  2. Applications must include a request for volunteers AND funding.
  3. Funding may NOT be used for fundraising, capital campaigns, individual requests, travel expenses, salaries, stipends, political activities or religious purposes.

* Funded applicants may be required to provide proof of 501 c(3) status.
