United Way of Central Massachusetts Announces Women Initiative Grants

United Way of Central Massachusetts
A one year grant, beginning July 1, 2013, has been announced by United Way of Central Massachusetts, and applications are open until February 1 to apply for the funding. Up to $250,000 is anticipated to be awarded through The Women's Initiative one year grant program.

Non-profit organizations that are financially stable are eligible to apply for the grants. Businesses must be located within 30 Massachusetts cities designated by United Way. The focus of eligible businesses must be programs which promote equality, education and confidence in young women and teach skills to prevent conflict.

The Women's Initiative program is dedicated to reducing violence among girls age 10-14 in Central Massachusetts. Businesses that receive grant funding are those whose goals match the mission of the Women's Initiative to "build, strengthen and support the development of healthy, safe and confident girls."

Grant funding is provided by United Way of Central Massachusetts. The non-profit organization was founded in 1920 and continues to raise funds to help families in need within central Massachusetts. Through volunteers, donations and fundraising events, the organization strives to support community needs in the areas of education, health and family stability.
