The Women’s Fund awards Community Impact Grants in the priority areas of domestic violence, economic self-sufficiency, sexual literacy and leadership development.

This year we are awarding $116,000 to nine organizations:

Excellence in Service to Women Grants

The Excellence in Service to Women Grant is in-tended to recognize and encourage excellence in programming for women that aims to achieve our shared vision of a community where every woman and girl can reach her full potential.

This year we are awarding $25,000 to Justice for our Neighbors for their Domestic Violence Access to Justice program to strengthen collaborations with law enforcement agencies and service providers on best practices when working with immigrant victims of domestic violence.

Emerging Issues Grants

Emerging Issues Grants provide funding for innovative solutions to emerging issues that face women and girls in our community. The goal is to provide agencies with funding for issues that face women and girls that the Women’s Fund might not yet know about or have not identified as one of its priority areas.

This year we are awarding $42,000 to four organizations:

Legacy League Grant

Three organizations applying for funding—Inclusive Communities, Nebraskans for Civic Reform, College of Saint Mary—were invited to present to our Legacy League, comprised of local girls, ages 8-18. After all three presented, Legacy League members voted to determine the recipient of this $5,000 grant.

Be The Change Grant

Three organizations applying for funding—Nebraska Children’s Home Society, Catholic Charities, and Intercultural Senior Center—have been invited to present their program in a video vignette at the 25th Anniversary Celebration. Attendees will vote to determine the recipient of an additional $10,000 in funding.
