How to Apply for a Grant From the Ms. Foundation for Women
The Ms. Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories who support women's issues. Grassroots movements driven by local community movement, as well as state and national organizations, and tribal organizations are eligible to apply.

Eligible organizations are those who are actively supporting areas of special interest by the Ms. Foundation. This includes reproductive rights and health, affordable child care, preventing child sexual abuse, and other issues that matter to women.

The Ms. Foundation was founded in 1973 by Gloria Steinem, Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin Pogrebin and Marlo Thomas. Since then, the organization has made a difference in the lives of women across the country by providing funding to more than 100 organizations working to protect women's rights, safety and well-being.

Applicants may check the foundation's web site for Request for Proposals that invite eligible organizations to submit proposals.
