Grants of up to $50,000 to Missouri and Kansas nonprofit organizations for activities that promote opportunity and equity for girls and women of all ages. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to applying. Funding is intended to support projects, programs, and activities focused on economic development and civic engagement.
Consideration will be given to programs aimed at changing policies and/or systems in order to promote and protect the rights of women and girls in a long-term sustainable way. The Women’s Foundation recognizes that there are a variety of strategies for achieving systemic change such as community organizing, leadership and coalition development, and public education.
When submitting their request, organizations should address the following indicators:
The Women’s Foundation intends to use approximately 50% of available grant monies to fund applicants that are proposing innovative service delivery strategies, and the remaining 50% to activities that are evidence-based.
The Women’s Foundation recognizes that promoting women can also mean promoting families. Although the Foundation's preference is to fund programs that serve women only or a vast majority of women, they understand that there are other strong programs that achieve the Foundation's mission while also serving men. If the program serves more than 10% of men/boys, applicants are requested to acknowledge that in the proposal and address how they believe that service strengthens women and families.
The Foundation does not have a preference for requests to fund startup projects or ongoing project costs. The funding priorities are directly related to achieving outcomes that strongly align with the Foundation's research (available on their website), and creating systemic change for women of all ages.
