Womenade Boston Grant Making


Womenade Boston is dedicated to philanthropic efforts that raise awareness and funds for programs that positively impact the lives of women and girls in the greater Boston area. We fund organizations serving people and communities from Boston out to the I-495 corridor.

We conduct a two-part evaluation process each year, beginning with Letters of Inquiry from interested organizations, followed by an invitation-only full grant application process and site visit. An Evaluation Committee works to narrow the pool of applicants to a group of finalists who make live presentations to our members.

Our evaluation process spans 6 months, beginning in January of each year, and culminating in our annual voting meeting in June, where giving circle members cast their votes to award our grants for the year.

In 2017, Womenade made 5 grants totaling $102,500 to 5 nonprofit organizations.

Grant guidelines for 2018 will be available in the fall of 2017. Please check back for more information then.
