The Junior League of Minneapolis was a women's non-profit volunteer organization founded November 9, 1923. The first president was Katherine Phelps. Membership is limited to women under 38 years of age. The purpose of the League is exclusively educational and charitable and is "to promote voluntarism; to develop the potential of its members for voluntary participation in community affairs; and to demonstrate the effectiveness of trained volunteers." The J. L. M.'s work is supported by membership dues, fundraisers including The Clothes Line (a resale shop), the ASID Designer Showcase Home, and by gifts from members and community friends. Some of their projects have included Arts Central Project, Group Home of the City, Inc., Pharm House Project, Jeremiah Project, Helping Hands, Violence Against Women Coalition, and Parade of Hope. As a whole, the Junior League is an international women’s organization that has chapters in Canada, Great Britain, Mexico, and the United States.
