Our charitable giving focuses on providing for the immediate needs–food, clothing and shelter–of disadvantaged women and children in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
To apply for a grant, 501(c)3 organizations should submit a request detailing the program, budget and specific measurements or success stories. Please also provide your most recent IRS form 990.
We are always grateful to learn about organizations serving the immediate needs of disadvantaged women and children in the area. Unfortunately, we receive more than 800 grant requests each year and are simply unable to fulfill them all. Therefore, we ask that you ensure that your request falls within our mission statement prior to submitting.
We accept requests on a rolling basis throughout the year, and they are reviewed on a quarterly basis. Please email your completed request to [email protected]. Thank you for your service to our community.
