The Foundation prefers that a majority (51% or more) of Board members and program leadership are women and that Board and staff reflect the population being served.
While the foundation has a preference for funding smaller organizations, it will not exclude any organization from consideration because of size.
The Foundation funds nonprofit organizations, as well as programs that are sponsored projects of nonprofit organizations serving as fiscal agents. (They do not require those fiscal agents to have female Board leadership, but the program itself should have majority female leadership; also, they prefer that the fee for serving as a fiscal agent be not more than 10% of the project budget.)
The Foundation fund startup and existing organizations/projects.
The Foundation funds general operating costs, special projects, and small capital projects.
The Foundation fund organizations or programs designed exclusively for women or girls. They do not fund general operating funds if it is unclear if those funds will specifically support women and girls’ programs.
If funded, the grantee is expected to submit a final report.
If you have the resources to send a press release to publicize this grant, they request that you share your draft with us before publication and provide a copy when it’s published.
