Our Decision-Making Process

In accordance with Our Grantmaking Priorities, preference will be given to programs that:

  • empower women and girls to make positive life decisions;
  • promote healthy relationships and reduce domestic violence; and
  • advance family economic security and help women enter or re-enter the workforce, including programs that help non-traditional female students enhance their employment opportunities through education or job training.

Additional preference is given to programs that demonstrate collaboration among service providers.
