Grant Opportunities

We believe women and girls can break down local barriers to equality when given the resources to do so. We fund projects across Minnesota that:

  • Redefine and reframe social issues.
  • Change individual and/or community behavior.
  • Build critical mass to engage more people in women’s social issues.
  • Reform institutional policies and practices.
  • Maintain earlier progress in the face of opposition.

We welcome proposals from statewide nonprofit organizations, American Indian Nations, and unincorporated* organizations.
