Grant Proposals for Financial, Safety & Health Programs – U.S.
The Women’s Endowment Fund of Akron Community Foundation is accepting grant proposals for programs that enrich the lives of local women and girls.
In 1993, a group of 106 women came together with one goal in mind: to make a difference in the lives of local women and girls. Seeing a need for funding to support programs that empower this population, the women each gave $1,000 to establish the Women’s Endowment Fund of Akron Community Foundation.
Economic Empowerment, including entrepreneurship, asset-building and financial literacy programs; programs that create better jobs, better access to jobs, and quality, affordable child care for women; and programs that enable women with children to work more productively.
Safety from Violence, including programs that raise awareness about violence through education; programs that prevent the occurrence and reoccurrence of violence against women and girls; and programs that develop a consistent and coordinated response to violence against women and girls.
Health and Wellness, including programs that raise awareness about healthy lifestyles through education and prevention; programs that support reproductive health and prevent teen pregnancies; and programs that help women and girls address depression and other mental health issues.
