Grants of $30,000 and grants of $60,000 to USA hospitals, cancer centers, and nonprofit organizations partnering with hospitals to provide services to cancer patients. Funding is intended support institutions with a large number of gynecological cancer patients. Grants are provided to cover the cost of a part-time Program Coordinator’s salary (can be a new hire, or a reassignment), program costs, and the patient fund.

Woman to Woman (W2W) is a program that pairs gynecologic cancer patients with trained Volunteer Mentors who provide one-on-one emotional support and mentoring. W2W also promotes education and self-advocacy for women in treatment, as well as for their partners, families, and other caregivers. From the moment of diagnosis through the end of treatment, W2W Mentors have helped hundreds of women and their loved ones cope with a diagnosis of gynecologic cancer.

Woman to Woman grants allow hospitals and community-based organizations to begin or continue enhanced support services to women in their communities. Funding and eligibility for sites is as follows:

  • Woman to Woman Hospital-Based Grant: The most competitive applicants will be able to demonstrate the following: adequate gynecologic oncology patient volume, physician and hospital leadership support, the need for the program, the ability to run patient-focused initiatives, and the ability to fundraise to support programs.
  • Woman to Woman Community-Based Organization Grant: The most competitive applicants will be able to demonstrate the following: the need for the program in the community or geographic area served, a history of running successful patient-focused initiatives, and an active working relationship with the proposed hospital partners. 
  • Woman to Woman Renewal Grant: This mechanism is for existing Woman to Woman programs to apply for a one-time renewal grant. The grant is intended to support the maintenance of a long-term, institutionally supported program that is already in place. The renewal funding process is competitive, and funding is not guaranteed.

It is expected that each Woman to Woman program will become self-funding after the first year.
