FIT (Food In Tummies) 2022-23

Your donation to the Food in Tummies (FIT) Program is an investment in the healthy future of 950 underserved school-aged children who face hunger over the weekend.  In concert with the Del Valle School District, The Junior League of Austin supplies backpacks full of nutritious food and beverages designed to help sustain a child's nutrition at times not served by the National School Lunch Program.  Your donation will support our efforts to fill approximately 32,000 backpacks this school year, and help alleviate childhood hunger in our community.  One hundred percent of your donation will go directly to program support for FIT.

Kids in Cool Shoes (KICS) 2022-23


The KICS - Kids in Cool Shoes KICS program is a project of The Junior League of Austin, which provides area children in need with a new pair of well-fitting sneakers, allowing them to be healthy, comfortable, and participate in physical activity. With the help of KICS, kids won’t have to sit on the sidelines during sports, or rely on too-small, worn-out, or hand-me-down shoes to run and play on the playground. Every kid deserves a pair of shoes that fit!

Your donation to KICS is an investment in the healthy future of underserved school-aged children. Studies show being given a pair of new shoes improves school attendance by 44%, participation in physical activity by 72%, and classroom behavior by 63%. One hundred percent of your donation will go directly to program support for KICS.

Donate

Endowment Fund 2022-23

The Endowment Fund is a separate investment fund for the benefit of the Junior League of Austin. Your gift to our Endowment Fund becomes part of a permanent investment, whose interest and dividends provide an ongoing source of financial support to the League (and ultimately furthers our community impact) in the years ahead.
