Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $65,000 to Arizona nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for programs that benefit women and girls. Funding is intended to allow organizations to create measurable impact, and to achieve social, political, and economic change that empowers women and girls. Organizations must serve women and girls in Southern Arizona, defined as Pima, Cochise, or Santa Cruz counties. This grant opportunity includes Annual Grants and Harriet Silverman Small Grants.

Grant Types:

  • The focus for the Silverman FY21 Grants is Women’s Health and Hygiene. Successful applicants must clearly articulate how their work addresses this need for women and girls in Southern Arizona. WFSA is especially interested in applicants who are working to address women’s health in relation to addiction issues. 
  • Annual Grants provide funding to organizations that empower women and girls through increased income/assets or through legislative/policy change.

The Foundation seeks partners that create measurable impact, achieving change that empowers women and girls in the region, by increasing women’s income and assets and/or influencing legislative/policy change. Successful applicants must clearly articulate their ability to measure one or both of these outcomes, as a result of the service(s) of their organization. In addition, to align with one or both outcomes, successful applicants will demonstrate how their organization applies a “2-Generation approach” to their work.

Organization must clearly present their ability to measure one or both of the WFSA required outcome metrics, as elaborated below:

  • If a direct service of your organization, or an outcome of your organization’s direct service(s), is an increase to income and assets for low-income women and girls, WFSA welcomes your initial application. Services to help women build income and assets include (but are not limited to): increased income, debt reduction, credit repair, increased savings, home purchase, grade level gains, high school graduation, completion of higher education, enrollment in public benefits, access to scholarships, workforce development to train women in a mid-skill, high-wage occupation.
  • If your organization, through collaboration or its own initiative, seeks to influence legislative and/or policy change to benefit women and girls in the community, with a focus on systems-level change, the Foundation welcomes your initial application. Influencing legislative and/or policy change may include (but are not limited to): advocacy campaigns that educate decision makers on the importance of the expansion of TANF funds, pay equity that ensures comparable pay for all jobs, comprehensive sex education that is evidence-based and age-appropriate, a two-generation approach to policy advocacy that links early care and education for children with workforce development services or coalition-building to prevent policy changes that are detrimental to women and girls.
