The Big Idea

The Junior League is an organization of women focused on empowering women in leadership and bettering the community through action. Their Big Idea, Empowering Women as Civic Leaders, uses hands-on leadership training and volunteer opportunities to further the skills and confidence of young women. The Junior League wants to give young women the power and knowledge to become leaders in their communities and steer positive change

The Junior League has been transformational in my personal and professional life. The Junior League’s investment in me helped further develop and cultivate my leadership skills, and advancement as a leader at work, in my community, and in my personal life. Moreover, I have met amazing women and developed lifelong friendships. These friendships continue to empower me to be an active participant in my community.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
