Grant Applications for 2021

Grant Applications

The Women’s Fund is pleased to announce our 2021 grants cycle. Applications will be accepted from organizations whose primary focus is to address key issues affecting women and girls in Central New York.


Applications will be accepted from nonprofit organizations determined as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code (IRS) that provide 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.  Preference will be given to organizations with annual operating budgets of $5M or less.


The Women’s Fund will award up to 8 grants of $5000 each.  To be considered for a grant, applications must be submitted on or before the application deadline.

Next Deadline: Applications must be submitted electronically by June 15, 2021.
