2021 Women & Girls Fund Grants

Since 2001, The Women & Girls Fund has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to organizations and individuals in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott. 2021 saw a total distribution of $65,000 in grants to improve the conditions and opportunities for local women and girls.

In 2021, one way the Women & Girls Fund commemorated its 20th anniversary was by committing $20,000 for a special anniversary grant program to award unrestricted operating support to nonprofit organizations. Eligible applicants were asked to answer a single question: “Twenty years from now, what do you hope others see as your organization’s legacy for women and girls?”. The 20th Anniversary Grantees are:
