The Fund’s grant making focus emanates from their 2015 research report A Second Look - Through a Gender Lens: The Economic Security of Women and Girls in Forsyth County
. This report highlights that poverty and economic security encompass and are impacted by these four focus areas in their grant making: financial stability; jobs/career development; education; and family impact. This report and the poverty study
released by Forsyth Futures indicate disparities within the community. Therefore, the Fund will give priority to applications that address concentrated poverty and poverty in African-American and Hispanic/Latino communities. Pilot projects or programs that explore innovative approaches to dealing with these issues are also welcome.
The 2019 Grant Guidelines and application forms are available under the grants tab of The Women’s Fund web site at www.womensfundws.org
or may be obtained by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling 336-714-3467. The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. on June 28, 2019.
