Apply for a Grant

Since 1994, the Women’s Fund and its grants program has awarded more than $1.3 million in grants to innovative programs that improve women’s and girls’ physical and mental health, ensure their economic security, promote their safety, and enhance their lives. We are proud to have funded 204 projects in Northeast Wisconsin developed by 80 different Fox Valley agencies.

Information about how to apply for the 2018 cycle was discussed at the Grant Seeker’s Workshop on November 2. Please call Becky Boulanger at (920) 702-7617 if you have any questions or missed the workshop.
