Grants to Greensboro, North Carolina nonprofits for innovative programs that support and help provide women with economic independence and self-sufficiency. An information session will be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017. Applicants are encouraged to schedule a consultation with program staff prior to applying.

Women to Women is pleased to announce two focus areas for grantmaking in 2017-2018:
1. Economic Independence; and
2. Grants that help support the planning and/or implementation of an initiative that:
- Addresses women’s issues in the community; and/or
- Informs the selection of future grantmaking topics.

1. Organizations seeking grants to address the focus area of economic independence for women and their families will be considered for multi-year support. These requests may be made for a grant of up to $210,000 (to be paid out over a three-year period, e.g., $70,000 per year for three years or a combination of varying amounts over three years). This focus area may include projects that:
- Support women’s progress toward economic self-sufficiency;
- Provide operating support to organizations that are working toward systemic change to increase the likelihood of economic self-sufficiency;
- Address one or more of the range of elements comprising economic independence;
- Assist women in building their capacity to increase income, increase their preparedness for the workplace, and provide economic stability for their families; and/or
- Promote awareness of the issues affecting the economic independence of women and their families.

2. Organizations may instead propose projects that have the potential to inform the Women to Women grantmaking program regarding priorities and grantmaking. Organizations may request “planning grants” or grants to support the implementation of innovative programs. Requests may be for amounts up to $25,000, for a period of up to 1 year.
