Grants to Michigan nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational institutions for programs that benefit local women and girls in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support projects that promote the well-being and economic self-sufficiency of women and girls in Emmet and Charlevoix Counties. In addition to funding well-established organizations, the funding source is especially interested in supporting new, innovative programs with the potential to provide unique services.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Hestia grants generally are in the $1,000 - $4,000 range.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, (preschool through college), and all units of government which provide programs or services for women and/or girls in Emmet and Charlevoix County.

If your group does not have tax-exempt status, you must have a fiduciary which does. Applicants must be current with their tax status and, if applicable, their registration to solicit charitable donations in Michigan.

Start-up programs need to have a financial fiduciary if they don't have their own tax-exempt status.

The Foundation does not usually fund political campaigns; projects that are religious in content (though religious organizations are welcome to apply for non-religious programs which serve participants without discrimination); loan payments or deficit spending; services normally supported by tax dollars; fundraising events; or grants to individuals.

Pre-Application Information:

The Hestia grant application deadline is May 1.

If you find it difficult to meet that deadline in 2021 because of the coronavirus situation, please contact the Foundation at the email, below.

The Foundation is not likely to fund the full cost of your project; the Foundation expects that you will have other funding sources.

A new application is required each year, but returning applicants do not have to create a new program or service each year. If your organization is providing effective programming that meets an ongoing need, Hestia will consider repeat funding.

Grantees will receive a check at the annual reception in June.
