The Women's Fund (TWF) is a collective philanthropic organization that serves the Redding area. Funding for grants is made available through the annual donations of TWF members. Grants are awarded once a year (in October/November) and are selected based on the cumulative voting of the entire TWF membership and thoughtful, in-depth evaluation by a grant review panel.

TWF seeks to fund worthy projects that address The Women's Fund mission, which is to "create a better future for women and their families in the Redding Area."

Proposed projects must be submitted within and include residents of the Redding area, which is defined as Cottonwood (within Shasta County) to the south, Shasta Lake City to the north, Palo Cedro to the east, and Igo/Ono to the west. Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or public agencies.

TWF will provide up to $50,000 for grants in 2020. Grant applications should be for no less than $5,000 and no more than $25,000.
