Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $5,000 to Central New York nonprofits for programs that support women and girls in Onondaga, Cayuga, Oswego, and Madison Counties. Funding is intended to support organizations that primarily focus on addressing critical issues facing local women and girls.

Every nonprofit has needs that go unfulfilled, year after year. Many nonprofits also have the capacity, but lack funding, to implement innovative solutions for the populations they serve. Maybe you have an idea for a new project or program enhancement that your organization would make if only the funds were available. If your organization has a bright idea for women and girls, this grant might be for you.

The Women's Fund of Central New York seeks to improve the lives of women and girls, serve as a voice and advocate for women and girls, educate women about philanthropy, and engage women in creating change through collective and targeted giving.
