The Community Impact Project (CIP) is an impactful project initiative of the Junior League of Indianapolis (JLI). The Community Impact Project provides volunteer support for community projects that can be accomplished in a one-time evening or weekend effort. When nonprofit agencies are limited in achieving their goals because of lack of manpower, this program provides a dedicated group of JLI volunteers to work on short-term projects.

  2. The chairwoman of the CIP committee will acknowledge receipt of any application within seven (7) days.
