About Women & Girls Fund Grants

The endowment of the Women & Girls Fund exists solely for the purpose of funding grants to organizations that address significant needs of women and girls on the Mid-Shore.  We take great care to review each application against our guidelines and to select programs that meet eligibility requirements and have the greatest potential impact.

We look for non-profit organizations that target the needs of women and girls in our region and groups or organizations that want to submit an application through a fiscal sponsor (i.e. a tax-exempt organization under the IRS code 501(c)3 that agrees to accept funds on their behalf).

Applications and guidelines are sent upon request to qualifying organizations or can be downloaded from this site.  You can also call 410-770-8347 to request an application or to discuss questions concerning eligibility.

To date, the Fund has awarded $452,586 to 77 non-profit organizations. 

“Your organization has touched the lives of many young women in a way that they will always remember.”

Robin DavenportExecutive Director, CASA of Talbot County

“I want to express my appreciation to the Fund’s support of fledgling community organizations – to help them get a foundation for growth. Certainly, our own Rebuilding Together Caroline County is a shining example. I (also) was pleased to be informed of the ladies of Nia mentoring program. Thank you for your continued mission to improve the lives of women and girls on the Mid-Shore.”
