Women and Girls Fund grants $50,000 to community organizations
The Women and Girls Fund of The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region has awarded $50,000 to three regional nonprofit organizations working to meet the needs of women and girls in our community. On May 12, members of the Women and Girls Fund gathered for the fund’s annual Live Ballot event. This event highlights the role of participatory philanthropy at The Community Foundation. Fund members heard
from nonprofit organizations regarding their grant application and made their funding decisions.
Each year, organizations are invited to apply for funding to help meet a specific need facing women and girls in the community. Congratulations to the following grant recipients and for their dedication to address the issues facing women and girls in the Rappahannock River region:
