Together Women Rise’s Featured Grants Program: Empowering and Supporting Women and Girls in Marginalized Communities

About Together Women Rise’s Featured Grants Program

Through our featured grants program, Together Women Rise provides funding to organizations that empower and support women and girls in low-income and marginalized communities in the global south. Each month, we feature a different organization or project, providing extensive learning materials on the project and the issue being addressed. We promote these projects through our nationwide chapters, website, newsletters, and social media platforms.

Featured Grant Program Details

Our featured grants program supports capacity building, new programs, or the expansion of existing programs. We award a minimum of 12 featured grants per calendar year, with each grant term lasting 24 months (2 years). The grant size ranges from $35,000 to $50,000, paid over the two-year period.

Organizations with budgets of $100,000 and above are eligible to apply. Additionally, organizations with less than $1 million in operating budget can apply for capacity building grants, which can cover various operational aspects such as technology, strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation, and staff training.

It’s important to note that organizations may receive only one featured grant per four-year period. Together Women Rise does not support debt reduction grants, endowments, lobbying or political activities/parties, election campaigns, government entities, or building funds or campaigns.

We do not fund organizations that engage in exclusionary practices based on religion or political affiliation, or those that attempt to convert the community beneficiaries to a particular religious faith or belief, or a political party or belief.
