WILPF US Mini-Grant Program

The WILPF Mini-Grant Program nurtures the work being done by Issue Committees and Branches.

We fund projects that serve WILPF’s mission and vision by building our program.  We favor projects that can be shared and replicated and that will have a national impact.  The tiered levels of funding, currently ranging from $250-2,500, are designed for flexibility and a diversity of needs, and may fund small one-time projects, seed larger efforts to help procure outside funding, and strengthen and expand on-going work from the local to UN level.

In 2017, WILPF has 3 granting cycles, with deadlines of February 15, June 1 and October 1.  Emergency grants may also be available.
