  • Grants will be made for programs that clearly meet a need of women or girls in their community.
  • Grants will be made to programs that promote healthy relationships and support women and girls, including those programs that serve men and boys.
  • Grant reviewers will look for organizations that consult and collaborate with other agencies to enhance existing programs and augment opportunities.

Eligibility Criteria

Restrictions

  • The Women’s Fund does not fund individuals, for-profit organizations, capital projects, endowments, debt reduction, fundraising events, campaigns to elect candidates, or programs that promote religious or sectarian activities.
  • Requested programs cannot be “half” of a program that is designed for boys and girls, or men and women. Programs for boys and men that relate to healthy relationships and support women and girls will be considered.
