LBDI Donor FAQ’s

Are donations tax deductible? Will donors get a tax receipt?  Yes. A donor tax receipt is sent via email to the donor email address provided once the donation is submitted. 

Can donors give anonymously? Yes. They may donate anonymously and request to display their name on the fundraising platform as “Anonymous”. However, the system will need to capture information internally, so that tax receipts and other information may be provided.

Can donors write a check or give cash? We are happy to accept checks. 

Please give your check to a Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) Advocate and make your check payable to the “Junior League of Little Rock”.  Please put ‘LBDI’ and the name of the Advocate on the memo line so that your donation may be added to the Advocate’s fundraising total. You may also mail checks to 401 South Scott Street, Little Rock, AR 72201.  

How will the monies raised be used? 

The funds raised make possible the work and mission of the Junior League of Little Rock. All donations are fully tax deductible. A few of the ways JLLR is using unrestricted donor gifts to address the devastating effects of poverty are:

Stuff the Bus: Through the Junior League of Little Rock Stuff the Bus community project, the league provides school supplies to approximately 3,000 students at 7 Title One schools in the Little Rock School District. Stuff the Bus launched in the spring of 2006 by serving 518 students at Watson Elementary and has grown significantly through the support of the JLLR Ways and Means activities. The goal of Stuff the Bus is to provide these students with the necessary resources to succeed.

Little Readers Rock: Little Readers Rock focuses on promoting high levels of literacy for young children up to third grade by improving their reading skills. The project was designed to create excitement in young readers and to make grade-level reading materials easily accessible to children. These goals are accomplished by the League’s participation in the Six Bridges Book Festival, hosting “Reading Days” at 7 Title One schools in the Little Rock School District, and the four “Little Free Libraries” that have been established and regularly stocked by the league. 

Boardwalk: Representatives of the Junior League of Little Rock utilize training provided by the league as members of Boardwalk. Boardwalk places members of JLLR on different Nonprofit Boards throughout the city of Little Rock. Many of these Boards serve members of the community affected by poverty.
