NJSL Grant

To show NJSL’s dedication to Coweta County, each year the NJSL selects a Coweta County non-profit organization to receive funds raised from our spring events to support our mission.  The Newnan Junior Service League holds two fundraising events in Coweta County during the spring:  The annual Big Event (Casino Night) and the ShamRock Run Road Race.  This year, the NJSL’s events are sure to provide excellent entertainment and fun and will continue to impact the community through our Grant Recipients.

We are currently accepting applications for 2018.  Click here to download grant application.  Application deadline is August 25th, 2017.
