2021 Grants

Annual Grants 2021


Grant Opportunity: In January, we opened our Letter of Interest application process to nonprofit organizations that have a dedicated program, project, or mission to support Maine women and girls. LOIs were due in January and reviewed by our Grants Committee. 24 applicants were invited to submit full proposals, which are being reviewed by our Grants Committee.

Our areas of funding support organizations that fulfill the needs of:

  · Education
  · Financial Skills & Literacy
  · Healthcare
  · Leadership
  · Personal Safety
  · Policy

What’s new? We continue to listen, learn, and evolve. Our Leadership-area grants will provide operational support for non-profit organizations run by and for Black, brown, and Indigenous women. 

We are heartbroken to share the passing of our Board Member, Chair of our Grants Committee, and friend, Candace C. Walworth, M.D. 

For the last seven years we have been the beneficiary of Candace's talents and time. She passionately led our work to reach our mission-driven goals and has left us a powerful legacy that will continue to transform the lives of women and girls for generations to come.
