This Year's Grantmaking

This Year's Grantmaking

2017 Grant Awards

For our 2017 grantmaking, we'll be giving $75,000 to organizations serving women and girls in Oregon. Our focus areas will be the "Eight That Can't Wait," which Count Her In identifies as areas of urgent concern (violence against women, systemic racism, the cost of caregiving, barriers to reproductive health, the wage and wealth gap, economic fragility, mental health, and the public/private glass ceiling).

Here's how our grantmaking process will work: first, our Grants Committee will release an open call for grant requests to all organizations that meet our 2017 criteria. Next, the committee will review each funding request and select several semi-finalists. In spring 2017, we will conduct site visits for each one. Then the Grants Committee will identify a set of finalists, and every current Foundation member will have an opportunity to vote on our 2017 grant finalists.
