Domestic Violence Shelter Grant Program

Mary Kay Foundation Accepting Applications for Domestic Violence Shelter Grant Program

The goal of the Mary Kay Foundation is to eliminate domestic violence. As a part of that effort, the foundation makes grants to organizations in the United States that assist survivors of domestic violence by operating emergency shelters.

To that end, the foundation will award a grant to at least one domestic violence shelter in every state. Any remaining funds will be distributed based on state population. Funds awarded by the foundation may be applied to the applicant’s operating budget (with the exception of staff travel).

Only applicants operating an emergency shelter (immediate overnight housing) for survivors of domestic violence are eligible for a grant. Applicants must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) under the Internal Revenue Code.

Grant applications will be available at the Mary Kay Foundation website from January 15 to April 30, 2019. Grants will be announced October in observance of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

See the Mary Kay Foundation website for eligibility and application guidelines.

Deadline: April 30, 2019
