Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Women’s Fund grant program provides funding to non-profit organizations, informal groups of women, or emerging grassroots organizations. Grant awards will only go to tax-exempt organizations classified as 501(c)(3) charities by the Internal Revenue Service. (If your program does not have a tax-exempt ruling from the IRS, please complete the Fiscal Sponsor Information Form.)

Organizations must be located in or provide services to residents within Lorain County. Grant seekers outside Lorain County must provide information on Lorain County residents served.

The Board of the Community Foundation of Lorain County is interested in innovative programs that are responsive to community needs, partnerships, and collaborative efforts. Lower priority is given to capital and equipment requests, mandated services, and duplication of existing services.

Grants will not be made to individuals, for debt reduction, loans, for-profit businesses, tickets for benefits, annual appeals, tours, telephone solicitations, political campaigns, and religious activities.
