100 Women Grants 2016 (Up to $30,000 of funding)

Brief Background
100 Women enables everyday people to be involved in creating a world where all women and girls can live safely with access to health, education and economic freedom. We do this by combining donations and knowledge to provide impactful grants. 100 Women is a giving circle, a unique collaborative process that enables everyday people to be involved and engaged in philanthropy. Members of our giving circle pool their financial, intellectual, professional and personal resources to ignite women’s philanthropy through the power of collective giving to advance the empowerment of all women. 100 Women has been established as a Public Ancillary Fund. The trustee for the 100 Women Public Ancillary Fund is The Alchemist Foundation. The 100 Women Advisory Board will manage the grant making process and make recommendations to be approved by The Alchemist Foundation as Trustee.
