The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore is encouraging organizations to submit funding requests for programs or projects that may qualify for grants from The Women’s Fund.
The Women’s Fund provides grants to address the unmet needs of women and/or girls on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore. Through this grant program, the Foundation will identify requests that identify a specific need in this targeted demographic and include a direct and measurable benefit to this highly targeted population in Wicomico, Worcester, and/or Somerset County. Grants will be in the $500-$5,000 range.
Applicants must be a 501c (3) nonprofit organization, a governmental entity or faith-based program providing non-sectarian programs.
The grant application deadline for 2014 is April 1st at 4 p.m. and grants will be announced in early June 2014.
