The Fund for the Me Too Movement and Allies

The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts (WFWM) is accepting applications for a spring 2020 grant cycle to fund organizations that are working to fight sexual violence in Western Mass. Funding for this grant cycle is made possible by a grant that the WFWM received from The Fund for the Me Too Movement and Allies (the Me Too Fund), housed at the New York Women’s Foundation.

In 2018, The New York Women’s Foundation, in partnership with Tarana Burke, launched the Me Too Fund with a specific focus on supporting the activists, leaders, and advocates in the ‘me too’ movement and allies. The Fund has a community-centered approach and supports programs and initiatives that are working on the prevention and elimination of sexual violence and harassment and the healing of survivors and victims.

The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts (WFWM) is carrying out Me Too Fund’s goal of ensuring ongoing philanthropic investments toward transforming the oppressive systems that produce structural inequalities of power that result in harassment and violence by making grants from this fund in and for our community.

WFWM is accepting grant applications from women and girl-serving organizations in all four counties of Western Massachusetts. Grants awards will be in the $5,000 to $10,000 range, and will be made with the goal of awarding at least one grant to an organization in each of the four counties. Projects funded by this grant must focus on prevention and/or intervention of sexual violence and harassment.

This grant opportunity is now closed–stay connected to the WFWM through our e-newsletter.
