2020 Grant Finalists
100 Women is pleased to announce the seven finalists for our 2020 grant round.
With COVID-19 restrictions affecting the operations and funding of our organisation this year, as well as the lives of many of our members and community, we’ve implemented a modified grants process. For the first time in 100 Women history, we closed the grant round and invited past 100 Women grant recipients and WA family and domestic violence service providers to submit applications on projects in line with 100 Women’s goals and the changed operating environment due to COVID-19.
100 Women members now have the opportunity to review the projects put forward for funding by our seven finalists, and vote to collectively decide which will be awarded grants.
Congratulations to all our finalists, and good luck!
Please note, voting is open from Friday, 4 September to Tuesday, 15 September.
Look out for a personalised email containing a link to the 2020 grants voting site – if you haven’t received your link, please make sure to contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org
