Funding Available for Grassroots Charities Serving Women and Children
Deadline: September 13, 2005

The WHO (Women Helping Others) Foundation (<a href=""></a>) supports grassroots charities around the country and in Puerto Rico serving the overlooked needs of women and children.

Specific projects and programs addressing health, education, and social service needs are the foundation’s priority. The foundation recognizes the value of new programs created to respond to changing needs and will consider funding projects of an original or pioneering nature within an existing organization.

In order to qualify for funding, an organization must have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status and be qualified to receive deductible charitable contributions. In addition, organizations must have been incorporated for a minimum of three years prior to application. Preference will be given to organizations with an operating budget of $2 million or less, those not dependent on government grants, and those with greater organizational program costs than personnel costs.

For complete program guidelines, eligibility requirements, and application materials, see the WHO Foundation Web site.
