Annual revenue is generated through membership dues, interest earned on fund balances, contributions made to the Endowment and Annual Funds and several special events. Current fundraising projects include:
The “Official Cookbook of Tulsa”, Oil & Vinegar is an emulsion of recipes from Junior League members, friends, and families. Known as the “Oil Capital of the World” nearly a century ago, Tulsa lured thousands of people seeking to strike it rich. These ambitious families brought a variety of traditions, legacies, and dreams, creating a culinary melting pot so beautifully depicted in this collection. Copies of Oil & Vinegar are available at local bookstores, or by calling the Junior League office at 663-6100 or purchase online.
JLT established an endowment fund that will ultimately be used to cover all operating costs – enabling the organization to put 100% of all fundraising dollars back into the community. The Junior League of Tulsa strives to obtain 100% participation from all members each year. Over the past four fiscal years, the JLT Endowment campaign has raised more than $69,000 through member pledges and community grants. Since the inception of the Endowment Fund, members have contributed more than $485,000 through direct donations and through a consistent designation of a percentage of membership dues. Donate here.
Annual Fund – JLT Partners
The Annual Fund provides a means for individuals, corporations and foundations to contribute to the Junior League of Tulsa, Inc. and financially support the League’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. To fulfill its mission, the Junior League must cover costs associated with administration, insurance, technology and communications; as well as costs for the League to place, train and educate its members. The support structure of the Annual Fund and JLT Partners will enable the League to contribute more than $475,000 in volunteer time and direct financial support to the Tulsa community. Donate here.
