Junior League of Monterey County


The Junior League of Monterey County, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.

The Big Idea

The Junior League of Monterey County has been training volunteers to be effective leaders in their communities for over 50 years. Many members continue their work throughout Monterey County as elected officials, city and county commission appointees, and leaders and board members of nonprofit organizations. The nonprofit hopes to dedicate financial resources to engage high-quality, talented leadership experts who understand the Junior League model so that they can grow their membership and continue to deploy skilled volunteers throughout our community.

The training I have received in the last 10 years in the Junior League is unlike any other. It has allowed me to grow as a woman, engage as a community member, and develop as a valuable employee with a diverse skill set. The training, the amazing women I have met and the pride I feel toward the league keep me coming back year after year.

We Did It, Together!

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 $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful.

Look for the 2020 Monterey County Gives! RFP (for applying nonprofits) in the Monterey County Weekly this June/July. Monterey County Gives! 2020 campaign kicks off in early November.

Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.
