IMPORTANT UPDATE - 2021 GRANT PROGRAM
In January of 2020, the Women’s Fund of Smith County was honored to award five community grants totaling $300,941 – the most we’ve ever given in one year. Remarkable growth in membership, strong support from community partners, and responsible stewardship led us to this landmark. These funds, as have all our grants, are impacting our community and transforming the lives of women and children.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are doing our best to navigate the path forward. We hope to provide relief and recovery for our community during this grant cycle, while remaining true to our mission and to our commitment of fiscal responsibility as trusted stewards of resources.
To that end and to be responsive to the unique needs this year, the following modifications have been made to our Grantmaking Program for 2021 Grant Funding:
- For 2021 funding, applications will be accepted ONLY from our existing nonprofit agency partners, to whom previous WFSC grants have been awarded – including those agencies receiving/utilizing grant funding in 2020.
- Funding WILL be considered for GENERAL SUPPORT/OPERATING EXPENSES.
- Project proposals for new programs or expansions of existing programs are encouraged.
A revised Grant Application will be available online, beginning Monday, June 8. Submission deadline is Monday, July 13.
Together, we are serving and strengthening our community with resilience and hope.
