Grants ranging from $1,000 to $20,000 to Iowa nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools to improve the lives of women and girls in Black Hawk County and Cedar Valley. Funding will be provided for programs and projects that address issues faced by women and girls in the areas of education and literacy, poverty and homelessness, violence and safety, and health and healthcare.

Priority will be given to opportunities that address a critical and urgent need, while fostering a solution-based approach.

Requests should be for one year only.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations must meet the following criteria in order to apply for a grant:
- Be classified as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or be a government entity. Tax-exempt organizations classified as other than 501(c)(3) are also eligible if and only if the project is deemed charitable; please contact the Foundation office to discuss the project’s eligibility prior to submitting a proposal.
- Be current with all state and federal reporting requirements, such as filing of 990 forms.
- Must not have any past due grant reports for previous Women’s Fund grants.

For groups, projects, or initiatives that do not meet the above eligibility requirements, the Community Foundation will consider your requests if submitted through a fiscal sponsor. Fiscal sponsors must be classified as a 501(c)(3) or a government entity. The Foundation prefers that the fiscal sponsor’s mission closely align with the sponsored project. Fiscal Sponsors will be legally and financially responsible for any grant funds that are awarded by the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa.

Restrictions:
- Public and private schools and school districts may apply, but the Foundation will not fund capital improvements, salaries or technology/equipment requests. Priority will be given to requests for innovative, replicable projects.
- If awarded, grants must be expended within Black Hawk County. Administrative or other fees paid to a parent organization or fiscal sponsor are not eligible budget expenses.
- Operational support requests must be connected to a project or program and should not be strictly for salaries.
- The Foundation will consider request for capital campaigns, but will not provide multiple grants (in subsequent years) for the same campaign.

Ineligible:
Inherently religious activities such as religious worship, instruction, or proselytization or activities that promote specific religious doctrine are not eligible.
