Grants can range from $40,000 to $100,000. Non-profit businesses in Mecklenburg County may apply. New and existing businesses are eligible as long as the nature of the business serves a critical need in Mecklenburg County in the organization's five designated areas.

The fund is particularly looking for business that will result in long-term results. Five organizations are chosen each year to receive grant money. Examples of businesses that have been funded include literacy enrichment, skill-building programs, summer school programs for low-income students, mobile dental clinics, family housing programs, and more.

The Women's Impact Fund was founded in 2003 by women entrepreneurs. Since its beginning, the organization has awarded a total of nearly $3.4 million to 44 non-profit organizations.
