Grants of up to $15,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible areas for activities that benefit local women and girls, particularly following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended for programming and operating support within the focus areas of economic stability, freedom from gender-based violence, and access to quality health care in the western suburbs of Chicago.
This spring CFW continues to be interested in funding organizations that are envisioning COVID-19 recovery that centers women, in particular women of color. They are looking for innovative ways of creating a gender-responsive recovery, addressing the disparate impact of the pandemic. Priority areas include:
Some examples of effort within those priority areas could include workforce development strategies that not only get women back into the workforce but consider their long-term economic security; innovative plans to address the crisis in childcare and unpaid care work; approaches to increase access to care (mental, physical and reproductive services) and improve black maternal health; or defenses against the attacks on the array of reproductive health services particularly abortion access.
Estimated Size of Grant:
Funds awarded are a one-year grant for work being done between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.
