Grants Promote Projects Benefitting Women and Girls
Open Meadows Foundation
The Open Meadows Foundation is dedicated to funding projects that are led by and benefit women and girls, particularly those from vulnerable communities in the U.S. and worldwide. The Foundation supports projects that are designed and implemented by women and girls, reflect the diversity of the community served by the project, promote building community power, and encourage racial, gender, and economic justice. Priority is given to organizations that have limited financial access or have encountered obstacles in their search for funding. The Foundation provides grants of up to $2,000 to cover start-up expenses or to support ongoing projects. (The Foundation also administers a number of special funds that are targeted to specific groups or activities.) The next application deadline for all of the Foundation’s grant opportunities is August 15, 2015. Funding guidelines and application instructions are available on the Foundation’s website.
