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.

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.

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