The Women’s Giving Circle of North Central West Virginia, a component fund of Your Community Foundation (YCF), is now accepting grant applications from organizations in Monongalia County.
Grants of up to $2,500 will be awarded to qualifying organizations. To be eligible for a grant, an organization must address one or more of the following needs of women in the community:
- Increasing life skills of women and girls through education, economic empowerment, physical and mental health and strategies for prevention of violence and crime;
- Encouraging the healthy development of girls; and
- Promoting gender equity in the community.
“We are excited to announce this is our first year of awarding grants, and we look forward to receiving proposals that will help us fulfill our mission and improve the community,” said Chairperson Beth Fuller.
Grant applications are due by 5 p.m. October 15 at the YCF office, 111 High Street, Morgantown, WV 26505. Late grant applications will not be considered.
“The grant review process can take up to 60 days, so applicants should keep this in mind when proposing projects with timing issues,” Fuller said. “All applicants will be notified if they have been awarded a grant or not. The funding period is for 12 months from the date of the award.”
All applicants must be qualified 501(c)(3) organizations in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service.
