2019 Grant Finalists
100 Women are pleased to announce the following seven finalists for the 2019 Grant round!
The quality of the 2019 grant applications was outstanding and the number of applications received broke all existing 100 Women records. With so many deserving projects benefitting women and girls around the world, we hope that in years to come, 100 Women’s members and supporters will be able to help more charities continue their good work.
100 Women members now have the opportunity to review the final seven projects and vote to collectively decide which will be awarded grants. Please note, the voting is open from Monday, 23 September to Monday, 7 October. Look out for your member email that will contain a link to the voting site.
The results of voting will be announced at our Gala Celebration on Friday, 1 November where the successful organisations will be presented with their grants. You can purchase tickets for this magical event here.
Congratulations to all our finalists, and good luck!
