Join us for Washington Women's Foundation's next Pooled Fund Grant Committee in 2018!
Our Pooled Fund Grants support five areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Health, and Human Services. Fueled by the combined strength of member giving, Washington Women’s Foundation makes five annual Pooled Fund Grants of up to $100,000, one grant in each of five funding areas. These transformational grants help not-for-profits meet critical needs, pilot new projects and foster innovation. And, because the Washington Women’s Foundation’s grant-making process is respected for its rigorous analysis and intensive member involvement, a grant from us often serves as a catalyst for leveraging other foundation grants and individual donations.
All Foundation members are invited to participate on the Grant Committee - no experience necessary! The committee researches and nominates candidate organizations for the Pooled Fund ballot that the entire membership votes on in June. Through a set of workshops and meetings starting in January, members analyze proposals, engage in discussion, and conduct site visits as part of their work. We will have more information, Click here for the Pooled Fund Grant Committee calendar. You’ll see the full committee events & trainings as well as the work group dates and times.
