Greenville Women Giving, a local women’s philanthropic organization, announced important changes for the 2016 grant-making process. As part of its 10-year anniversary celebration, Greenville Women Giving has set a membership goal of 500 members who each contribute $1000 to the grant pool. Upon reaching this goal, Greenville Women Giving will award grants totaling $100,000 in each of its five funding areas: arts, education, the environment, health and human services. In the event Greenville Women Giving surpasses its grant pool goal of $500,000, the excess will be divided equally among the five areas. Grants will continue to be $40,000 to $100,000 each.
Nonprofit organizations serving Greenville County are encouraged to apply through Greenville Women Giving’s online application (greenvillewomengiving.org/grants). Grants applications must be submitted by midnight on Jan. 8, 2016 to be considered for 2016 grants, which will be awarded May 10, 2016.
Membership in Greenville Women Giving is open to all women who commit to the annual contribution. For information about membership, upcoming events, and grants please visit greenvillewomengiving.org.
