Grants of up to $30,000 to New Jersey nonprofit organizations for services, projects, and programs that address the needs of local women and girls. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding may be used to support gender-based projects and programs that recognize that women and girls have unique needs and interests and address the following areas:

  • Self-esteem: including body image, healthy behaviors, interpersonal relations
  • Abuse prevention: including domestic violence, substance and sexual abuse, human trafficking, bullying
  • Empowerment in the workplace, educational system and family: including leadership development, improving communications skills, job readiness and search, educational advocacy
  • Financial self-sufficiency: including education, workforce development
  • Special needs: including those of women veterans
  • Civic involvement/political engagement

General Considerations:

  • JWF funds projects through a gender lens.
  • JWF favors projects that address the challenges that women and girls face and promote social change, rather than requests for general support of an overall program budget.
  • Projects with an advocacy component are welcome.
  • JWF values and encourages leveraging other funds, collaborations, or other partnerships.
  • JWF considers an organization’s overall support and inclusion of women and girls, as well as the specific project or program for which they are seeking a grant. This includes the extent to which women and girls are included among your leadership and key staff.
