You can visit our website or click the buttons below to apply and read our grant guidelines, which include our grantmaking priorities for this year.
We hope you notice that our application looks and feels different this year. The Fund’s Grants Committee has worked to create a more informal, inclusive, and equitable application process for prospective grantees. The goal is to ensure that our application process does not take away from the invaluable time prospective grantees dedicate to their work in the community. As a result, we’ve kept questions to a minimum, and those completing the application form have the opportunity to tell us about their work in the way that feels best for the organization.
Don’t just take our word for it. We encourage you to look through the application form to see the changes for yourself and let us know what you think. Please share this opportunity with organizations doing impactful work to support those who identify as women and girls, and encourage them to do the same and apply!
The deadline to apply is midnight, Wednesday, July 13.
