Grantmaking Priorities and Objectives

The 2024 Grant Cycle of the Women’s Fund of Randolph County will seek applications for programs that provide services for women and/or children that will enhance their futures, especially programs that demonstrate innovation and creativity in providing new solutions to unresolved community needs.

Nonprofits are encouraged to partner for existing program enhancement and/or new program development.

Success should be measured by the ability of program participants to receive services that provide them a picture of a better life beyond today. Program area examples include, but are not limited to:

Family Crisis Prevention
Family Support, Financial Literacy, Parenting Enhancement
Women in Crisis
Domestic Abuse, Teen Pregnancy, Divorce, Death of a Spouse
High School Completion, Postsecondary Education Readiness
Leadership, Community-Appropriate Behavior, Life Skills


  • Applying organizations must have administrative offices located in Randolph County.
  • Capital projects will not be considered for funding.
  • No grants will be made solely to individuals and grants will not be made to organizations for the purpose of providing scholarships to individuals.
  • No grants will be made specifically for sectarian religious purposes, but can be made to religious organizations for general community programs.
  • Applying organizations must operate without illegal discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or disability.
  • The Women’s Fund of Randolph County, held by the Community Foundation of Randolph County, Inc. (CFRC), supports projects and programs of organizations they have a charitable purpose and are consistent with the mission of the CFRC. Generally, the determination of whether an organization’s activities are charitable or not is made by the IRS in assigning a tax-exempt status. Organizations with a 501[c][3] not-for-profit status are engaged in charitable activities. The Women’s Fund may also make grants to non-501[c][3] organizations when the grant is for a charitable purpose.
