To celebrate 15 years of grant awards and in response to the pandemic that has greatly impacted our community, Women United in Philanthropy is excited to offer an additional grant opportunity in 2021, for an organization that can benefit from a smaller grant award. It is our intent to support a diverse base of organizations that may be led by active minority community members. This year we will award two grants of $17,500 each, and a third grant of $5,000, for a total of $40,000 in grant awards. Congratulations to our seven finalists, who were carefully chosen by our Grant Committee from 26 submissions. More detailed information about each finalist’s proposal can be found HERE.
Five finalists for the two grants of $17,500 each:
- All Blessings Flow – Flowing and Growing
- Charlottesville Public Housing Association of Residents (PHAR) – Internship Program
- Cultivate Charlottesville – From the Ground Up: Cultivate Charlottesville Food Justice Community Leaders
- Nearby Baby – Postpartum Doula Support
- The Free Book Bus – Everyone on the Bus!
Two finalists for the third grant of $5,000:
- Charlottesville Rotary Club/Charlottesville Rotary Foundation – Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library ($5,000)
- Yellow Door Foundation – Partnership on rental for one apartment at Stone Creek ($5,000)
