Sorry, we do not provide advice about selecting a Focus Area. Each organization must make that decision for itself. It is up to the applicant to determine the Focus Area that best aligns with the nature of the proposal.
The “Competition” within each Focus Area will depend on the number and quality of proposals submitted for that area. Because of that, it could be perceived as unfair for WRWF to help an applicant choose a Focus Area. We recommend you consider which Focus Area best represents the emphasis of your proposal.
No, please send only information specifically requested. Any additional materials will be discarded.
For technical questions regarding our online application, please contact SlideRoom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions regarding WRWF guidelines or process, you may email email@example.com. If we have questions about your proposal, we will contact you.
Wood River Women’s Foundation is committed to a fair, unbiased process. We do not accept any unsolicited communication related to topics other than questions about the guidelines or application process.
The grant distribution amounts are dependent on the number of women who join year to year. Nonprofits receiving the highest number of votes will be awarded their grants.
Yes. However, one of the collaborating organizations must be the “lead organization”, applying as if it were an individual organization on behalf of the collaboration. The lead organization must be willing to take on all the potential rights, responsibilities, restrictions and liabilities of the grant, if it is received.
We accept proposals. Committee reviews and evaluate the applications, and will request a site visit, to select a finalist.
After each committee selects its finalist, all WRWF members receive information on the finalists. The finalists attend our Grant Presentation in March and make presentations about their proposals. WRWF members vote by individual ballot and that vote determines the grant recipients. Grant awards are announced in April.
No. As stated in the grant guidelines, WRWF seeks projects that expend grant funds within 12 months.
Your guidelines indicate you will not fund capital campaigns. Will you fund capital expenditures as part of a proposal?
Yes. We will fund capital expenditures that are clearly related to the core mission of an organization.
Yes. If an organization has been awarded a grant 2 consecutive years, then it can not apply the following year.
You may apply again the following year.
WRWF notifies all applicants at each stage of the application process, even if they do not receive a site visit, or become finalists.
Yes. WRWF distributes project grants through the Idaho Community Foundation in July.
