New Mexico Community Foundation: NewMexicoWomen.org Justice and Healing GrantsDeadline: January 27, 2017
NewMexicoWomen.Org (NMW.O), a program of New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF), strives to advance opportunities for women and girls statewide so that they can lead self-sufficient, healthy, and empowered lives. In 2017, NMW.O’s grantmaking will be focused on Gender Justice and Healing. Objectives are as follows:
- Strengthen the gender justice movement and efforts in New Mexico by partnering primarily with organizations led by or serving women and girls of color, as well as low income and rural communities working on behalf of women and girls in New Mexico
- Foster community health by supporting culturally rooted and relevant healing programs and efforts, recognizing healing as a necessary process and base upon which other programs and efforts can then be built
- Further increase the understanding of how organizations and communities across the state define and work towards gender justice and healing
In addition to organizations led by or serving women and girls of color and women and girls in low income and rural communities, programs serving immigrant women and girls and the LGBTQ community are also considered a priority. Finally, the NMCF knows the deeply detrimental impact of patriarchy and rigid gender roles upon men and boys themselves, and the corollary impacts upon women and girls. In acknowledgement of that, some funds will be available for programming that addresses concepts of healthy masculinity, misogyny, and patriarchy with men and boys.
Grants will be made to support general operating costs.
Amount: Five to ten one year grants, ranging from $8,000-$10,000, will be awarded.
Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations.
