Women’s Foundation of Mississippi (WFM)
Grants to Mississippi nonprofit organizations and educational or research institutions for programs that open up opportunities for women and girls to succeed. Letters of Intent are due April 16, 2018. Funding is intended for programs that promote social change by helping mothers complete their education and addressing the issue of unplanned pregnancies.
- Access to Opportunity: 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.
- Reproductive Health Awareness: One of our top priorities is to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy rates through real sexual education that is evidence-based and medically accurate. Not only do these unplanned pregnancies handicap future generations, they cost the state $155 million in lost economic potential every year. 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. The Foundation is proud to say that their efforts have already helped lower Mississippi’s teen birth rate, but the Foundation still has a long way to go.
- Better Futures: The Women’s Foundation uses a two-generation approach to provide opportunities for and meet the needs of parents and their children together. The Foundation helps 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.
