The Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln is currently accepting applications for the Women's Fund grant.

The Womenís Fund

The Womenís Fund is an endowment fund built by Women for Women members to increase awareness and address the needs of women and children in Sangamon and surrounding counties including Cass, Christian, Logan, Macoupin, Menard, Morgan, and Montgomery.

Up to $52,500 is available, and multiple awards may be granted during the 2020 grant cycle. Multi-year funding, for up to two additional years, may be available.

Grants are awarded to programs that address the most pressing issues facing local women and their families.

Women for Women members pool their resources to fund worthy projects and achieve greater impact in the community than they might not otherwise have been able to do individually. Since it was established in 2007, Women for Women has granted more than $325,000 to programs that support local women and children.

Access to the online grant application and instructions on completing the proposal can be found on the Community Foundationís website: Local non-profit organizations are encouraged to submit a letter of inquiry before the February 3, 2020 deadline.

Letters of inquiry will be reviewed, and organizations that are selected to submit a full grant proposal will be notified by early March. The final grant awards will be presented at the Women for Women grant reception on May 5.

Women for Women was established at the Community Foundation in order to promote philanthropy among women, create a permanent source for grant-making and to address the needs of women and children in the community.

Please contact the Community Foundation with any questions at 217-789-4431. Local nonprofits that would like to be notified of grant opportunities can also sign up on the website to receive grant alerts via email.
