Economic Security Grants

Economic security is the cornerstone of the Fund’s mission. A woman’s ability to take care of herself, her family and contribute to her community depends on her financial security. With economic security, women can break the cycle of violence and access better housing, health care and employment. The Fund invests in non-profits committed to helping achieve economic security for all Maine women and girls. Since 1989, the Fund has granted over $1.9 million to 184 organizations.

The Fund provides critical funding to nonprofit organizations within six strategic areas that together advance the economic security of women and girls: Education; Financial Skills & Literacy; Healthcare; Leadership; Personal Safety and Policy.

The 2015-16 LOI Application has closed. All 2016 LOI applicants will receive notification by January 8, 2016. To view the 2015-16 Economic Security Grant Guidelines click here.
