The Junior League of Denver

The Junior League of Denver (JLD) is a women’s training organization that develops civic leaders committed to improving our community. We are currently working to improve literacy rates and provide access to books for children through the third grade. Founded in 1918, the League started, and aided in starting, many well-known Denver institutions including Children’s Museum of Denver, Mile High Transplant Bank, the Red Rocks concerts and many others.


The League created Colorado Cache in 1978, and has sold more than one million copies of its first cookbook alone. JLD added a sixth cookbook to its award-winning collection in 2019. Centennial Celebrations is packed with the colorful flavors of the Centennial State and honors JLD’s 100th anniversary. The creative menus, recipes, and entertaining tips will inspire you to cook, connect, and celebrate… Colorado style!


Our six award-winning cookbooks are available for purchase at a variety of local and national book retailers. Proceeds from sales support our Mission and community work.
