The Women’s Fund, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation, welcomes grant requests from nonprofit organizations that support women and children and are located in or provide service within the North Carolina Community Foundation’s jurisdiction. The fund gives special consideration to those programs with a focus on women’s health and/or women’s leadership. For the third year, the grants committee will be comprised of women participating in the NCCF’s women’s giving groups across the state and other women passionate about supporting women’s health and leadership. Average grants range from $1,000-$2,500. In 2008, we awarded $8,500 in grants to organizations across the state.
The deadline for submitting grant applications for the 2009 Women's Fund grants program has now passed. The advisory committee is currently reviewing applications and will be making recommendations in the very near future. All 2009 applicants will be notified by the end of October.
