Investing in the Field

to Advance the Blueprint for Action

The Women’s Foundation of Minnesota (WFMN) invests in organizations, leaders, and the movement to create the conditions for women and girls to thrive.

New Grant Opportunity

In the first phase of YWI MN investments, the Women’s Foundation is investing $350,000 to move specific Blueprint for Action recommendations forward. This Request for Proposals invites front-line organizations working in the intersecting areas of economic opportunity, safety, respect, and leadership on behalf of and with young women to apply for one-time grants of up to $25,000 in general operating support.

Additionally, YWI MN grantee-partners will be part of a yearlong learning cohort that will participate in quarterly facilitated meetings and serve as partners of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota as we move the recommendations from the Blueprint for Action forward.

Applications are submitted online via web portal, which requires an initial registration. Proposals are due Jan. 12, 2018.
