Grants typically ranging from $1,000 to $30,000 to Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, nonprofit organizations that are working to create social change for women and girls in the
Greater Washington, D.C. area. The Foundation will accept grant proposals from organizations that fall into one of the following categories:

2. Washington, D.C. metropolitan area organizations focused on social change for local low-income immigrant women and girls.
3. Women and girls in Israel (by invitation only).
This year, TOWF will consider funding programs in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area involving Jewish and/or low-income immigrant women and girls that address, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Building advocacy on the front lines of current issues affecting women and girls
- Protecting the rights of low-income immigrant women and girls
- Mobilizing the next generation of girls and young women for political leadership and action
- Improving civil discourse in a polarized society
- Pre-selected organizations in Israel addressing social change for women and girls.
Preference in Israel will be given to programs that are operating on a national or regional level and/or can serve as a model to be replicated in other parts of the country.
TOWF’s focuses on social change philanthropy that addresses the root causes of social and economic injustices and supports organizations that are getting to the root causes of problems instead of only addressing the symptoms.
When reviewing applications from potential grantees, the Foundation uses the “Four Shifts of Social Change” to help evaluate a potential grantee’s social impact. See Pre-Application Information for more details.
