On Tuesday, June 5, The Women’s Fund held a grant training seminar for local nonprofits interested in applying for a WF grant. Facilitated by Women’s Fund Coordinator Betsy Brush Hahn, representatives from more than twenty-five agencies spent the morning learning about The Women’s Fund, our mission, and the type of projects that WF wants to fund. Big ideas, impact on the community and future sustainability were stressed as some of the major points that are considered in the evaluation of the grant applications. Members of the Grant Committee also attended the seminar and were available to answer questions that the agencies had concerning the vetting process and the voting by the membership.
The grant application process will begin on June 9. Agencies that meet the criteria will be able to apply online through this website in the APPLY FOR GRANT section. If you have questions about applying for a grant, please call The Women’s Fund at 903-509-1771, ext. 102.
