As nonprofits face impending challenges to sustain operations across the state, Greenville Women Giving has adjusted grant amounts to $50,000 for a one-year term. The group will accept applications for the grant program from Nov. 1- 27.
This year’s focus is on supporting organizations that provide essential services across the county with grants being used to supply or expand service capacity, operation costs, program development or streamlining existing processes, according to a news release. At least one grant will be administered to a nonprofit that aligns with the group’s founding principal of “one woman, one vote,” as well as each of its five funding areas: the arts, environment, education, health and human services.
“Our goal is to support non-profits that are working on high impact areas of need,” GWG Co-Chair Susan Cinquemani said in the release. “COVID-19 has created so many overwhelming needs throughout our community that we knew the highest impact we could have was to create more opportunities for more non-profits to support more people.”
An information session on the application will be posted on the group’s website alongside grant guidelines and the application on Oct. 29.
