Grants to California nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies for quality human services programs in Los Angeles and/or Orange Counties. Funding is intended to support programs and services that assist women, primarily regarding their physical, mental, and financial health.

Funded programs and activities should deal with the issues of homelessness, substance abuse, domestic violence, and vocational training.

The Foundation is able to support only those organizations that have received tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or that are governmental agencies.

Grants are not made to individuals or for activities that support candidates for political office.

The Foundation strongly discourages the submission of multiple applications from one organization. This includes chapters or field offices. The Foundation also will not review more than one application per year (any twelve-month period) from any organization, including chapters and field offices.
