Thursday, 12 December 2013 00:57

The New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF) has announced a total of $2.3 million in grants to 32 organizations across New York City as a part of The Foundation’s Fall 2013 grant cycle. This latest cycle of funding rounds out a record grant making year for the Foundation, having awarded a total of $5,250,000 in 2013 – the most amount of grants awarded since NYWF was founded over 26 years ago.

The Fall 2013 grant cycle represents The Foundation’s responsiveness to crises and broad systemic issues, while simultaneously focusing on its mission of promoting economic justice for women and families in New York City. Grant making categories included in this cycle of funding are:

  • General Operating and Program Support - one grant totaling $60,000;
  • RISE-NYC! (Respond, Inspire, Solve, Engage) - 18 grants totaling $1,200,000;
  • Systemic Impact - seven grants totaling $495,000;
  • Initiative Against Sex Trafficking of Minors - four grants totaling $300,000; and
  • Hurricane Sandy Response and Recovery Fund - four grants totaling $250,000.

This cycle marks the Foundation’s last round of funding within its RISE-NYC! initiative, which was created in 2009 and driven by the Foundation’s commitment to respond to the increased need of New York City’s women and families during the economic recession. In addition, the Foundation awarded its second round of funding for both its Hurricane Sandy Response and Recovery Fund, and its Initiative Against Sex Trafficking of Minors.
