Grants + Scholarships

Women's Fund GrantsWe are passionate about creating systemic change that positively affects women and their families.  Because of the generosity of our donors, we have granted nearly $1 million to empower women and girls in our eight-county service area. Although we have identified ten areas that affect women's ability to be self-sufficient we focus our efforts on four key areas:

  • Employment
  • Living wage
  • Training and Education
  • Childcare

Specifically, we focus on women and their families who are between minimum wage and self-sufficient wage (about $20/hr). Grants will be considered for programs that serve this population and clearly address barriers that prevent them from achieving economic self-sufficiency.  See the our list of past grants.
