Women's Organization Grant Opportunity

The eWomenNetwork Foundation aims to encourage an environment of caring, healing, and growth for women and children by helping them to achieve optimum potential in all spheres of their lives. To that end, the foundation is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations for projects designed to improve the emotional and financial well-being of women and children.

The foundation awards individual grants of $6,000 to small entrepreneurial organizations that address the health, wellness, and/or safety of underprivileged women and/or children. In addition to the cash grants, the foundation will sponsor a representative of each recipient organization to attend a special grants program at the eWomenNetwork International Conference and Business Expo in Dallas.
