The Women’s Fund has announced a new approach for the 2017 grants cycle. Applications will be accepted from organizations in need of support for planning grants to address key issues that affect women and girls. Funding may be used to cover costs related to planning, such as data gathering, research, consultants, meetings, etc. Funds should be used to supplement and not supplant resources that already support the organization.
Applications will be accepted from any not-for-profit organization determined as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code (IRS) that provides services in Onondaga, Cayuga, Madison and/or Oswego counties. If the IRS does not recognize your organization as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, you must submit written approval from the 501(c)(3) sponsor that has agreed to act as your fiscal agent for the grant.
Grant applications are accepted for requests up to $10,000. To be considered for a grant, applications must be submitted and electronically dated on or before the application deadline.
Next Deadline: Applications must be submitted electronically by June 15, 2017.
When submitting your application, please include a copy of the applicant’s or sponsoring agency’s IRS letter of determination showing 501(c)(3) status, most recent financial statements (audited if available) and a current Board and/or Advisory Council list.
