Grants to Washington nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that benefit local communities. Eligible focus areas include arts and community culture, housing and hunger, and law, justice, and incarceration. Additionally, applicants may choose to apply for grants for programs that benefit women and girls and programs related to advocacy.

Collective Grants

Through Collective Grants, the Foundation's members invest in three priority areas that have been identified by the broader WA Women’s Foundation community and chosen from the year’s themes. While priorities change year-to-year, the themes rotate annually on a two-year cycle. The themes are as follows:
Year 1 (starting the 2022 grant cycle) the focus is on the thematic areas of Law, Justice & Incarceration, Housing & Hunger, and Arts & Community Culture. The funding priorities are as follows:
  • School to Prison Pipeline: Focusing on the relationship between our education system and our justice system, and the trend of young adults being funneled into detention, creating a pipeline from school to jail.
  • Mental Health & Housing: Focusing on the intersection of mental health and housing and supporting organizations that address the many ways trauma and mental health can create additional challenges and unique needs in housing.
  • Community Cultural Preservation: Investing in systemically under-resourced communities by supporting the preservation of language, stories, performing arts, sites, crafts, relationships to land, forms of subsistence, and other cultural traditions.

Year 2 (starting the 2023 grant cycle)

  • Healthcare
  • Climate & Agricultural Justice
  • Education
Advocacy Grant
The Foundation offers a grant to organizations that work in advocacy within each of the year’s chosen priorities. Organizations may opt into consideration for our Advocacy Grant while applying for the Collective Grants on the LOI form.
Women & Girls Grant
Supported by the WFA Fund for Women, the Foundation offers the Women & Girls Grant to organizations and programs focused on women and girls within the year’s chosen priorities. Organizations may opt into consideration for the Women & Girls Grant while applying for the Collective Grant on the LOI form.
