President's Welcome

Welcome to the Junior League of Omaha!

On behalf of our 675 members, I invite you to explore our website and learn about what we do.

The Junior League of Omaha is a 501(3)(c) organization dedicated to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Our 98 year history in the Omaha community is evidenced throughout numerous local civic programs and nonprofits we have helped to build and support.

We are an organization committed to cultivating community leaders. Our training opportunities include civic education, leadership development, fundraising, financial administration, event planning and project management. For almost a century, Junior League of Omaha volunteers have been trained to lead change in the Omaha community. Our membership has provided more than 1.4 million volunteer hours and $2 million to local causes. This year, we will continue our community projects, Project Hope Pack, A Book of My Own and Done-in-a-Day, contributing volunteer time and direct financial support to benefit metro-area women and children.

The 2016-17 year will be exciting for the Junior League of Omaha! We continue to grow rapidly and are happy to welcome 92 New Members. New projects and fundraisers will be developed and introduced. Our focus for long-term success will continue with our strategic planning.

Our theme for the year is “Giving Back is Always in Style.” We’ve been giving back to our community since 1919 but we also give back to each other. We train, inspire and support one another while giving our strengths and talents to the Junior League of Omaha. Our Mission and our relentless acts of giving back to the community and to each other will always be in style.

As president this year, I am honored to serve this organization and its members. We have an exceptional legacy and will continue to build a better League and a better community. Thank you for choosing to support the Junior League of Omaha!


Sincerely,

Chaley Chandler

Junior League of Omaha President
