The Women and Girls Fund of Waukesha County is accepting letters of intent for grants it will award in 2021. The WGF will award grants up to $15,000 each for selected programs or projects.
The WGF, established in 2004, seeks to aid and enrich the lives of women and girls so they become thriving residents of their communities. Each year, the WGF awards grants to local nonprofit agencies to support projects and programs that provide opportunities for women and girls of all ages. Grants are awarded for specific, measurable programs that advance the health, education, well-being and empowerment of women and girls in Waukesha County.
In 2020, the WGF awarded $103,650 to 10 local non-profit organizations and $25,000 to seven area non-profits to help address emerging needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since its inception, the WGF has granted more than $1,128,000 to its partner organizations.
