Our Granting Process
As the first step in our granting process, Women’s Funding Alliance invites interested organizations to submit a Letter of Inquiry. This consists of a brief application that offers applicants to share their idea and need for grant support. From there, we will invite select applicants to submit a Full Proposal Application. During this stage, applicants share about their work in more depth. We may also request to meet with applicants for a phone or in-person conversation.
Letter of Inquiry applications were due on March 8, 2013. Grant announcements will be made in June 2013.
