Grant Alert: Grants Enhance the Lives of Women and Children
The WHO Foundation: Women Helping Others supports grassroots organizations throughout the United States and Puerto Rico that serve the overlooked needs of women and children. The Foundation provides grants of $1,000 to $40,000 for critical health programs and social services projects that give women and children the knowledge and tools they need to improve their lives. Examples of funded programs include food and shelter for the homeless, healthcare for the poor, after-school programs, career training for under-employed women, positive programs for young girls, and domestic violence prevention programs.
Eligible organizations must have been incorporated for a minimum of three years. (The Foundation will consider funding projects of an original or pioneering nature within an existing organization.) Applications are due on September 6, 2011. Visit the Foundation’s website below to review the application criteria and download the application form.
