The Junior League of Minneapolis
Founded in 1923 by a small group of women who shared a common philosophy of community service, the Junior League of Minneapolis is an organization of women committed to developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The Junior League’s offices are currently housed on the fifth floor of the Woman’s Club, and the two organizations share a long history of working together to meet the needs of the Twin Cities. Visit their website at www.jlminneapolis.org.
The League of Catholic Women
On November 11, 1911 a small group of women gathered in the tearoom of Donaldson’s department store to form a new service organization—the Minneapolis League of Catholic Women (LCW). One was Isabel MacDonald Donaldson, an original benefactor. Elizabeth Quinlan was another early benefactor. The League is an independent, multi-generational 501(c)3, honoring the work of those who came before, responding to the voices of women of today, and forging a new path of contributing to the community in which we live with supportive services and spiritual, educational and personal growth opportunities for all women. The League's office is on the sixth floor of The Woman's Club of Minneapolis. Please visit them at www.leagueofcatholicwomen.org.
