Since 2003, Women's Impact Fund has invested nearly $6.4 million in 89 grants to 84 nonprofit organizations across Mecklenburg County.

Here is a look back at grantees who completed their grant activities in 2020.

Women’s Impact Fund is a women’s collective giving philanthropic organization that serves the Charlotte Mecklenburg region. Funding for grants is made available through the annual donations of Women’s Impact Fund members. Grants are awarded once a year in May and are selected based on a thorough internal vetting process and a final vote of the entire Women’s Impact Fund membership. Women’s Impact Fund also may elect to fund a Spark grant each year that is a quick response to a developing community need or initiative.

Women's Impact Fund seeks to fund worthy grant requests that have the potential for high impact and significant positive change in our community.

We welcome grant applications from nonprofit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations located in Mecklenburg County and/or serving a majority of their clients in Mecklenburg County.

Women's Impact Fund believes that a healthy, strong community requires strong programs and services in a variety of areas. Women's Impact Fund currently funds grants in each of five focus areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Health, and Human Services. Grants typically range from $40,000 to $100,000.


Spark Grant

In 2018, Women’s Impact Fund broadened its grants portfolio by adding Spark — a new grant intended to help spark positive change in our community! This grant allows us to be more agile, responsive and collaborative and adds flexibility for identifying and funding projects outside of our traditional high impact grantmaking process.
