Apply For A Grant



YWL 2017-2018 giving theme is Strong Women, Strong Communities. If this theme resonates with a particular project in your organization, we welcome you to submit an application.

The YWL supports various local charitable organizations and volunteer agencies through funding and service. This year we focus on organizations that work with women. Criteria for evaluation of proposals include examining whether the programs support the YWL 2017-2018 Giving Theme: “Strong Women, Strong Communities,” plus the general stability of the organization submitting the proposal, and how the funded programs impact the community. Bearing our charity theme in mind, we encourage you to mention specific needs and their related costs. Please note that we do not fund operational costs, such as rent, salaries, office supplies, postage, etc. We will consider both large and small requests. Grants are awarded with the stipulation that the money be spent in full within one year of receipt. The YWL Charity Research Committee meets in the fall to begin our evaluation process. We will decide final appropriations after our year-end fundraiser in late May 2017. Funds will be distributed in June and all applicants will be notified of our decision at that time.

The application deadline for 2017-2018 was August 1, 2017. Please check back in the spring for details about our 2018-2019 giving theme.
