The Junior League of El Paso Endowment Fund represents a long-term development strategy to assure the continued vitality of the Junior League of El Paso, Inc. in its mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action of trained volunteers.
Founded in 2002, the Junior League of El Paso Endowment Fund is designated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation and a 509(a)(3) supporting foundation of the Junior League of El Paso, Inc.
