The Canadian Women’s Foundation is now accepting proposals for 
Girls’ Fund Grants for 2016-2020.

The Girls’ Fund grants are intended to support community programs or networks designed to increase protective factors in girls aged 9 to 13 – such as confidence, critical thinking skills, social connectedness, and overall resilience. 

Organizations can apply for one of the following types of grants:

A.    Girls program involving weekly programming for girls

B.    Girls group mentoring involving formal mentoring, matching small groups of girls with one mentor or team of mentors

C.     Combined girls program and girls group mentoring 

D.    Network activities involving building the capacity of girls serving organizations across a region or nationally

We will select up to 28 grants to a maximum of $40,000 per year for four years. Initiatives must work with girls aged 9 to 13 and be inclusive of all gender expression.
