Overview:

The Women's Legacy Fund and Grant Guidelines

The Women’s Legacy Fund (WLF) of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation is placing its annual call for Letters of Idea. This year’s Women’s Legacy Fund grant is the beginning of a multi-year grant opportunity for a local nonprofit. The multi-year grant consists of a 3-year partnership (2018 is the inaugural year), with $20,000-$30,000 granted to the selected nonprofit each year. For the first year, the WLF will be awarding $30,000 to an organization for a project or program that provides access and attainment for education opportunities for women and girls in Southwest Florida. With that in mind, applicants should provide a proposal that includes the details for year one activities and budget. Proposals also will require an estimate of years’ two and three activities and budgets with as much detail as possible but understanding that there may be some additional adjustments. E

xamples of project or programs that provide access and attainment for education opportunities for women and girls include, but are not limited to, programs that support women who have credits but no credential in completing their post-secondary education, mentoring and support for girls to access and persist through post-secondary education, gap funding to remove the financial barriers to post-secondary attainment for women, and technical college enrollment program targeted at women.
