Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation: Children’s Initiative GrantsDeadline: March 1, 2017
The goal of the Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation’s Children’s Initiative is to support direct service programs that create and promote stability, resilience, and healing for children who have witnessed domestic violence. Funded programs should:
- Directly serve children 0 – 14 years of age who have witnessed domestic violence.
- Be centered on evidence-based strategies or an innovative approach, with the goal of healing children who have witnessed domestic violence.
- Be a new program for the organization that is within its first year of development or implementation. The Foundation does not fund existing programs or the expansion of existing programs.
- Include a plan for an outcome-based assessment of the program activities. This should contain rigorous metrics for measuring the program’s effectiveness in healing children who have witnessed domestic violence.
- Enhance the relationship between the child and parent/primary caregiver.
The Foundation gives priority to programs that:
- Include a specific domestic violence education component for the parent/primary caregiver.
- Offer therapeutic services beyond crisis intervention and the establishment of initial safety.
- Collaborate with other organizations to enhance services, measure outcomes, or expand and share knowledge.
