The Women's Fund, part of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities, is accepting grant applications for programs that serve women and girls in five midstate counties.
Up to $15,000 in grants is available for programs in Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon and Perry counties. The average grant last year was $2,000, according to a news release.
The programs must incorporate at least one of these priorities:
• Advancing the lives of girls and women by providing opportunities to develop economic self-sufficiency.
• Providing health programs for women and girls.
• Promoting the education of women and girls.
Applicants must be a registered 501(c)(3) or have a registered 501(c)(3) acting as a fiscal agent for the proposed project. Deadline to register through TFEC's online system is Oct. 11. Award notifications will be made in late November.
TFEC's mission is to stimulate philanthropy and enhance quality of life through accumulating, managing and disbursing financial assets while helping to meet a range of community needs in Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lebanon and Perry counties, as well as the Dillsburg area of York County.
