Our Grants


Since 2002, the Women's Fund has encouraged organizations to see their services through the eyes of girls and women and worked together with them to develop new ideas and initiatives to address their unique needs.

Each year, the Women's Fund awards grants that focus on serving girls, women in transition and elder women through our funds. Learn more about the grant criteria by clicking on one of our focus areas below.


Focusing on the girls ages 10 to 18, the Women's Fund aims to support programs that assure equality, success and health for girls.
