See what we’ve been up to in the November issue of our newsletter, Piper.

The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula has supported 94 community projects, awarded grants to more than 200 local nonprofits, contributed thousands of volunteer hours to our community and trained generations of peninsula women who have gone on to serve on nonprofit boards and found their own nonprofit organizations.

Over the years, we’ve played a key role in starting several local nonprofits including:
• The Tech Museum of Innovation
• Daybreak Shelter
• The Stanford Health Library
• Rebuilding Together Peninsula
• East Palo Alto Charter School
• Rosalie Rendu Center

Community Impact

By providing girls opportunities to explore STEAM (STEM+Art) concepts, we help them increase their confidence and expand their horizons so that they can fully participate in STEAM fields and in our local economy at a higher level. That is why we are empowering girls to be STEAM leaders of tomorrow.

Project STEAM

In partnership with Project READ at the Redwood City Public Library, providing hands-on STEAM activities for girls and their families.

Done in a Day Projects

Short, intensive community activities that are typically complete in a single day or weekend. Recent project partners include Canopy, The Princess Project and St. Anthony’s Padua Dining Room.

Community Grants

Responding to critical community needs in our geographic service area. Community grants are available to nonprofit agencies for new programs, capital expenditures and emergency or general operating funds. Applications are accepted in January – stay tuned for details.
