Women & Girls Grants Available

The Community Foundation welcomes applications to advance equal opportunities for women and girls throughout Eastern Connecticut. Thanks to generous gifts and bequests from committed donors, four permanently endowed funds serve the Northeast, Norwich, Southeast and Windham areas of our region. Our shared grantmaking priorities reflect the challenges identified in The Status of Women and Girls in Eastern Connecticut:  

Advance family economic security 
Empower women and girls to make positive decisions 
Promote healthy relationships and prevent domestic violence 
Support access to women’s health, mental health and reproductive health services 
Support public policy, advocacy and leadership to promote equity 
Help New London women, ages 62 and older, with limited incomes to remain in their homes (Southeast only) 

More details are available on our website.

Collectively, the Women & Girls Funds have an endowment of nearly $6.9 million and have awarded $2.41 million in grants to over 531 programs.
