The San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF), a supporting organization of The San Diego Foundation, invites nonprofits to submit a Letter of Inquiry for its upcoming grants cycle. Overviews, deadlines and grant guidelines are below.

San Diego Women’s Foundation

The San Diego Women’s Foundation welcomes nonprofits and programs serving the San Diego region to submit applications for its 16th annual grant cycle. The goal of this year’s grantmaking is to support programs that enhance the employment readiness of individuals in underserved communities.

There is approximately $165,000-$200,000 in available funding to award in June 2016.

The minimum grant to be awarded in this grant cycle is $25,000.

SDWF is particularly interested in programs that provide career-specific education, training or work experiences that increase access to San Diego’s labor market and the prospect of long-term financial self-sufficiency.
