WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING?

New Hampshire organizations serving New Hampshire women and girls and are designated as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are eligible to apply. Please note: Organizations which have been funded three years in a row by the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation are requested to take a year off from applying.

WHAT WE FUND:

Our grantmaking is strategic and focused. We are interested in efforts that: address the root causes of problems faced by women and girls; result in long-term positive change for women and girls; challenge systemic barriers faced by women and girls; promote the empowerment and leadership of women and girls; demonstrate collaboration among women’s and girls’ organizations; raise consciousness of the status of women or girls or raise awareness of issues of concern to women or girls; impact public policy in support of the full and equal participation of women and girls; and encourage philanthropy by women and girls.

We seek out programs that benefit women and girls by:

  • Promoting Economic Security


  • Supporting Health, Wellness, and Safety


  • Enhancing Leadership, Education, and Empowerment


Examples of some of the things we fund are:  New or special projects or programs that benefit women and girls, general operating support, and organizational capacity building.  Grant awards are typically between $1,000 and $7,500 and are highly competitive.

Examples of some of the things we don’t fund are: 

·  Individuals seeking direct support for things such as school tuition, living expenses, medical expenses, etc.

·  Academic research

·  Donations to capital campaigns

·  Sectarian, religious or partisan activities

·  One-day conferences

·  Activities that will have already occurred by the time funding is awarded in September

·  Organizations which have been funded by NHWF in the prior 3 years

Please note that funding will not be available until September.  Please do not apply for any projects which require funding prior to that time.
