Competitive awards to provide financial support for organizations working with women and girls globally
In accordance with WIL of Greater Philadelphia’s mission of “investing in underserved women globally who take the lead in becoming self-sufficient, elevating their families and communities,” WIL offers competitive Empowerment Seed Grants to provide financial support for non-profits and NGOs. These grants target areas of WIL’s mission other than microfinance and village banks: education, health, training, social and political empowerment programs for women.
Grants of up to $1500 are awarded to provide seed money and/or help build capacity in programs. In 2022, 6 grants were awarded to organizations in 4 different countries.
During 2021-2022, WIL funded special, one-time grants of up to $6,000 to support the completion of a single major initiative or project for a small non-profit organization in a developing country. Four special grants were awarded to organizations in Guatemala, Haiti and Uganda.
