The Granting Process
Each year, we select three deserving programs and organizations to receive our grant funding. Through careful research, discussion, and leadership, we narrow down applicants and use the following year to learn about each of the finalists before granting funds at our annual awards celebration.
How are grants awarded?
- Members contribute to the Women & Philanthropy fund through their annual membership investment.
- Throughout the year, we learn about our three grant finalists and what they hope to achieve through their program or research.
- Each member votes on how to divide funding by allocating 100 points across the three finalists.
- At our annual awards ceremony, we celebrate the finalists and award grants out of the Women & Philanthropy fund.
Women & Philanthropy members will vote on fund allocation of our current grant partners in April 2020.
