Grants to Mississippi nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational institutions for programs that address social disparities and provide opportunities for women and girls to succeed. Funding is intended for activities and projects that promote social change, such as decreasing unplanned pregnancies through medically accurate, evidence-based education, or helping mothers graduate in order to provide a better quality of life for their children.

Focus Areas:

  1. Healthy Women: One of the top priorities is to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy rates through real sexual education that is evidence-based and medically accurate. By ensuring teens have access to pregnancy prevention programs, the Foundation can keep young women on track to finish their education and achieve their dreams. 
  2. Two-Generation Better Futures: Uses a two-generation approach to provide opportunities for and meet the needs of parents and their children together. We help mothers and guardians further their education and career training, while providing necessary childcare and early education to their children and grandchildren. With opportunity more readily available, multiple generations of Mississippi women can create paths to success.
  3. Two-Generation Community College: Many Mississippi women face dire social and economic barriers every day, limiting their opportunities and derailing their paths to success. The Foundation wants to open more doors for more women by funding programs that offer career guidance and access to educational opportunities needed to pursue those careers. The Foundation's research-based methods have already helped hundreds of women reach a brighter future.

Please refer to Webinar Slides found in Supporting Documents below, for more information on specific programs related to the focus areas.
