Minneapolis Foundation invites application for WCA Foundation

The WCA Foundation, a Signature Fund of the Minneapolis Foundation, has announced its 2024 Project Investment grant round. The WCA Foundation is a volunteer-led grantmaking organization whose members, all local women, are committed to learning about and responding to the most urgent needs of women in communities across the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. They contribute their time, talent, and care to advance the foundation’s mission and engage in participatory grantmaking during two grant rounds a year.

The WCA Foundation supports women-focused organizations, initiatives, and projects that provide direct services to address basic needs in education, economic stability, shelter, safety, and health. In this grant round, the foundation will fund project-specific requests, and the project must provide direct services to women ages 18 or older. Roughly $675,000 will be awarded to 25 to 30 organizations, with grant amounts ranging from $10,000 to $30,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit organizations that have a 501(c)(3) tax determination in their own name. Grant applicants must maintain direct responsibility for the work for which they are requesting funds. The organization and project must have a physical location in the Twin Cities seven-county metro area (Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties) and serve clients primarily from that area.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Minneapolis Foundation website.
