Grant Description
Grants of up to $5,000 to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and schools to benefit families in eligible locations. Funding is intended for new projects or to enhance existing programs. Awards may also be considered for start-up funds. Requests must reflect sustainability and other ongoing support. Eligible proposals benefit women and families in Elk County.

Women Who Care strives to educate, encourage, and expand the number of women committed to philanthropy in order to strengthen the community by providing funds and assistance to issues that are important to families. The Women Who Care Fund welcomes grant applications as part of its mission to provide funding for projects that have the most impact on the families in local communities.
