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 $1.7 million to nearly 200 organizations.
The Fund provides critical funding to nonprofit organizations within six strategic areas that together advance the economic security of women and girls: Education; Entrepreneurship; Healthcare; Leadership; Personal Safety and Policy.
The Maine Women’s Fund seeks to invest in programs and organizations that are focused on creating tangible social change, and not simply service delivery.
