Programs may take place in the Counties of Avery, Buncombe, Burke, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey.

The high impact grant in this focus area will be awarded to a collaboration of three or more organizations and will be up to $450,000 in a three-year grant. Collaboration is a more formal and long-term arrangement. It brings separate organizations or individuals into a new relationship with a joint commitment to a common purpose. Finances are shared.

Priority Areas:
-Domestic violence
-Sexual assault
-Human trafficking
-Elder abuse
-Bullying
-Sexting (social media)

Women for Women will invest in programs that:

-Demonstrate sustainable and measurable social change for women and girls in WNC through services that promote freedom from violent and abusive situations

-Address causes or prevention of domestic abuse

-Make a long-term difference and increase safe living conditions in the lives of women and girls

-Advocate for safe living conditions for women and girls at various levels of society - communities, institutions, systems and policies

-Demonstrate collaborative and/or cooperative partnerships with other organizations and groups that yield greater impact than either organization could achieve alone

Estimated Size of Grant:

Women for Women will make a grant of up to $450,000.

Term of Contract:

Women for Women will make a three year collaborative grant.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Tax-exempt organizations described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code and governmental entities are eligible to apply for these grants.

The Foundation will accept proposals from collaborations only. A collaboration is a mutually beneficial relationship between three or more organizations working toward a common goal by sharing responsibility, authority and accountability for achieving transformational results.

For-profit companies are allowed to be in the collaboration, as long as the contribution is in-kind and no funding is awarded to that collaborative partner.
