Our 2018 Annual Grant Cycle is now open, effective December 1, 2017, with a call for Letters of Inquiry (LOI).
Annual Grant Priorities:

We are especially interested in the following priority areas of focus for 2018:
- Increasing women’s income and assets by partnering with and investing in organizations that demonstrate measurable impact in economic change that empowers women.
- Influencing legislative and/or workplace policy change that improves the lives of Southern Arizona women and families in economics, safety, health and leadership.
