Local non-profits focusing on women in the workforce should apply for grants online by December 2

Women in Motion, an initiative of the High Point Community Foundation, is accepting applications for new grants specifically offered to support non-profit organizations and programs that address the financial, health and educational needs of women in High Point, Archdale, Jamestown, Thomasville, and Trinity.

Women in Motion welcomes pilot programs that target under-represented women in the community. Community organizations that have programs pertaining to one or more of Women In Motion’s four identified areas of need for women in the workforce should consider applying:

  • Education: Women need additional education to help them negotiate and advocate for themselves and their families.
  • Mentorship: Women need better systems for networking and encouraging growth in each other.
  • Resources: Women, especially women small business owners, express a need to tap in to resources that already exist in the community in order to increase their professional and business success.
  • Wellness: Women seek to balance personal wellness and professional success with professional and family demands.

The application deadline is December 2, 2019 and there is an informational meeting Wednesday, Oct 16, at the High Point Public Library from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. Here grant applicants can learn more and ask questions regarding the grants process.

New this year, all Women in Motion Grant Applications will be accepted online www.womeninmotionhp.org/grants!
