President's Message

Thank you for visiting the Junior League of Wilmington’s website. We are proud to be celebrating 95 years of improving the greater Wilmington community. Click here to see the many organizations that have benefited from the time and talents of Junior League members over the years. Imagine what can be accomplished in the next 95 years!

I am honored to be serving as president through June 2014. I credit my League membership with so much: the confidence to advance my career from development director to executive director, the chance to tackle new roles as a volunteer and the opportunity to meet passionate, committed and fun women. I joined the League in 2007 when I relocated to Delaware and knew no one other than my Realtor. I didn’t imagine that six years later I would be leading an organization that has given back to me more than I have contributed.

The Junior League of Wilmington is unlike any other nonprofit organization in our community. Where else are you encouraged to tackle new challenges as a volunteer each year? Where else will you meet women with such a passion for their community and the organization that they remain members for 50 or more years? The League is a unique combination of opportunities to provide direct volunteer service in our community, learn key nonprofit leadership skills through hands-on experience and formal training and make connections with like-minded women that will last for years.

I encourage you to learn more about the League by exploring our website or attending one of our events – whether you are considering membership or are seeking to engage talented volunteers for your cause.

2013-14 President
