Grants available for Vt. women and girls
MIDDLEBURY — Funding is now available from the Vermont Women’s Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation for organizations and programs supporting economic security and well-being, and career opportunities, for Vermont women and girls.
The 2022 competitive grant program will award grants of up to $10,000 for proposals that:
- Make pathways to economic well-being more visible, accessible, and affordable for all women and girls;
- Invest in the economic security and career prospects of unemployed women or those earning less than a living wage;
- Advance strategies that address systemic barriers to economic well-being and thriving in Vermont; and/or
- Enhance the capacity of your organization to achieve its mission and practice stated values.
To achieve a deep and strategic impact, the Vermont Women’s Fund will continue to focus its grantmaking on an area highlighted by the research of Change The Story: women and girls on the pathway to viable careers. There are significant funding gaps in this area, and the Women’s Fund believes it is uniquely positioned to make a difference.
The Vermont Women’s Fund, a component fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, was established in 1994 as an enduring resource for our state’s women and girls. The fund remains the largest philanthropic resource dedicated exclusively to this mission. A council of people from around Vermont advises the fund and participates in its grantmaking, fundraising, and leadership work.
Nonprofits may apply online at any time. Applications will be accepted through March 18 at 5:00 p.m. Visit vermontwomensfund.org/grants to learn more.
