Grants to Local Nonprofits Grant Application

Please check back for our 2016 dates

Do you know a small non-profit whose mission includes improving the emotional and financial well-being of women and children? Encourage them to apply for an eWomenNetwork Foundation Grant!

All across North America there are countless worthwhile initiatives taking place that are truly making a difference for women and children in need. We know that local non-profits typically get their start when an individual, or group of like-minded people, decides to create an organization to address an unmet need in their community. Much like the entrepreneurial businesswoman, these start-up organizations need all the help they can get to make it and thrive over time. We know that even the smallest of organizations can make a big impact. In the spirit of "lifting as we climb," the eWomenNetwork Foundation exists in part to support these little known non-profits by providing small grants that can make a big difference.

Our local eWomenNetwork Chapters raise funds continuously throughout the year so they can qualify to issue a Grant. The Foundation funds raised by each chapter are set aside for distribution to charitable organizations located in the area from which they were generated. Foundation Grant packages include a combination of a $6,000 cash grant and the sponsorship of a grantee representative to attend a special Grants Program at the eWomenNetwork International Conference and Business Expo. Grant seekers are also invited to apply directly online but will only be considered if they operate in a region where there is an active chapter of eWomenNetwork that is issuing a Grant.

Grant decisions are made with the support of a locally formed review committee. The selection process includes a comprehensive evaluation of the organization, a financial review and a possible site visit to assure that the organization is worthy, addresses the specific criteria of the Foundation and practices sound financial management.

If you are a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and fit the criteria listed below, you are welcome to apply for one of our $6,000 grants.
