Women's Fund of Hawai‘i (WFH) is seeking proposals and applications for two separate funding opportunities.
The first, its "Relief, Recovery, and Reimagining Grant," is an up to $60,000 award for innovative programs, ideas, or projects aimed at creating a post-COVID reality where women thrive. Women and girls, particularly those of color, have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. This grant aims to support efforts that create opportunities that provide women support, access, and resources to be engaged in meaningful work that provides fiscal stability, safety, and wellbeing; choices on how to spend their time; access to high-quality healthcare and family supports; and the freedom to live without fear for their safety.
Online applications for this grant will be accepted April 1 - 30, 2021. Learn more about the Relief, Recovery, and Reimagining Grant here.
The second opportunity is WFH's spring grant applications. Nonprofit organizations with innovative, grassroots programs for women and girls are invited to apply now through March 31, 2021. Awards for this grant are generally no more than $5,000. Learn more about the spring grants here.
WFH is the only Hawai‘i foundation that focuses on women and girls. Since 2005, they have awarded more than $1,000,000 partnered with more than 100 community-based organizations to improve the lives of women and girls throughout the state.
