Young Women's Christian Organization Fund Grant

 The purpose of the Young Women’s Christian Organization Fund, a Donor Advised Field of Interest Fund of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, is to improve the lives of women and girls in the Baton Rouge area. This endowed Fund was established in 1997 as a legacy for members of the Young Women’s Christian Organization. An advisory committee meets twice a year to review grant requests from organizations whose programs support women and girls. These program areas are arts and humanities, community development, education, environment, human services and healthcare.

The Fund will support nonprofit organizations in the city of Baton Rouge. It will provide:

  • program grants to support new, creative or beneficial programs;
  • capital fund grants for new construction or major renovations;
  • seed money grants to help start a new organization which responds to an important opportunity in the community;
  • bridge grants to sustain good organizations experiencing financial hardship; and
  • operating expenses to sustain organizations pursuing asset based community development.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
