Grant Timeline and Process
About Our Committee
Members of the WGOCF advisory committee represent the nuanced and holistic identities that make up women of color in Arizona. Committee members represent a range of racial and ethnic identities as well as professions and regions in Arizona.
This committee also shares two considerable traits: Lived experiences as women and girls of color in Arizona as well as a collective dedication to the intentional and culturally informed support of women and girls of color.
Organizations interested in applying for the Women & Girls of Color Fund are invited to watch the online information session video. This session is designed to introduce organizations to WFSA, the grant cycle process, and provide details about the Women and Girls of Color Fund. You will learn about WFSA’s commitment to creating safe and supportive opportunities for BIPOC and women-led organizations serving women and girls of color, and information about the focus groups that helped inform the fund.
