the Grant Applications

For its Small Grants program, JWF is particularly interested in funding initiatives that address the economic security needs of women and girls.  However, innovative proposals in other areas impacting the lives of women and girls will be considered.

Funding Guidelines

The JWF is seeking to:

  • Create innovative ways to support women and girls by funding programs that address their unique needs;
  • identify, implement and evaluate new strategies that address issues relevant to women and girls; and,
  • fund proposals that work to create or help sustain social change.

Grant requests for 2017 should not exceed $10,000. Organizations will be considered for funding on a year-to-year basis. Previous funding will not guarantee continued funding or preclude future funding.  See proposal details below.
 
JWF encourages new and innovative initiatives, but will consider funding existing projects that address our mission and focus.

JWF funds only organizations with their own 501(c)(3) tax status or with a fiscal agent who is a 501(c)(3). 

Projects to be considered are for Allegheny County, PA only.

JWF does not fund scholarships, political campaigns, capital campaigns or endowments.
