The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade has announced the grant recipients for the 2016 grant cycle.
The grants will support girls with mentoring services, domestic violence education, and robotics education; they will help women in crisis and assist incarcerated women as they re-enter society.
Educate Tomorrow, Miami-Dade Police Department, PACE Center for Girls Miami, Women’s Emergency Network and Prosperity Social and Community Development Group Inc. will receive a $10,000 grant award each from The Women’s Fund Miami-Dade to fund projects in the coming year.
The grant to the Miami-Dade Police Department Project DOVE is the first annual Amy Karan Legacy Grant. The mission of the Amy Karan Legacy Fund is to support non-profit organizations in providing education and services dedicated to the prevention of domestic violence.
Several changes to the grant-making program are designed to increase the impact of this funding on the lives of women and girls. Organizations funded last year were invited to reapply for larger grants, and required to bring in another organization to collaborate in program design and delivery.
In addition to funding, The Women’s Fund will provide ongoing mentoring and assistance. New reporting tools will capture data regarding program impact that will be valuable to the grantees and to The Women’s Fund.
“We are excited to be focusing our grant making this year on organizations that are doing great work in collaboration with other community non-profits. We believe that collaborative work will be an important part of achieving results on the issues we are addressing and will also strengthen all of the organizations.” said Marilyn March, executive director of The Women’s Fund. “The status of women and girls in Miami-Dade is improving, but our work is not done yet.”
The Women’s Fund will recognize these new grants at the annual Women’s Voices Fundraising Breakfast Event on Friday, Nov. 3, at Jungle Island.
