Grants of $500 to $5,000 to Lower Eastern Shore, Maryland nonprofits, government agencies, and religious entities for programs and services that address the unmet needs of girls and women in Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset County. Priority will be made for first-time applicants and/or programs. Requests must articulate a direct and measurable benefit to the targeted population.

Funding is intended to increase the impact of local programs serving girls in foster care, mothers in crisis, young women seeking job-readiness or leadership skills, and others who need a hand-up to be stronger and more self-sufficient, and forces for positive change in the community.
