The Women's Fund Announces 2022 Grants Program
Exciting news! The Women’s Fund is now accepting applications for its 2022 grants program! The Fund’s grant program focuses on building economic security for those who identify as women and girls in Forsyth County. Organizations can apply for a maximum of $15,000.

The Fund seeks to support work that is:

  • designed with a focus on increasing economic security and or mobility for those who identify as women and girls.
  • designed to benefit and positively impact those who identify as women and girls
  • making an impact in Forsyth County, NC.
  • being implemented by a 501 (c)(3) organization, a government or public agency, or a faith-based organization.

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.

Do you have a proposal idea you'd like to discuss before applying? We'd like to hear from you! Contact Shamika Starke at with any questions.

"After being in Winston-Salem for a few years, I was looking for an opportunity to reinvest in the community that I had grown to love. I admire that The Women's Fund prioritizes women and girls while working to understand and address the inequities they face through an intersectional lens."

Save the Date - The Women's Fund 17th Annual Luncheon
It's time to save the date for The Women's Fund's 17th Annual Luncheon - Reemerge. Recommit. Reimagine. - on Wednesday, November 16th from noon to 1:30 pm.

After two years of celebrating virtually, we are hopeful that we'll have the opportunity to gather safely in person again this fall in a way that allows our supporters to more purposefully reconnect with each other in smaller group settings and talk directly with some of our 2022 grant recipients to learn about their incredible impact. 

We hope you will join us to celebrate the power of collective giving!
