The Princeton Area Community Foundation’s Fund for Women and Girls has awarded $186,000 in grants to 13 local nonprofits to fund programs that serve economically vulnerable women and children.
“The Fund for Women and Girls is comprised of individual members who engage in collective philanthropy and grantmaking,” said Cathy Schaeder Batterman, Fund Co-Chair. “Thanks to the generosity and commitment of our Fund members, we have awarded more than $400,000 in grants to over three dozen nonprofits in the last three years.”
Nonprofit representatives, Fund members, and their guests gathered at the Fund’s Annual Grantmaking dinner. Representatives from six finalist organizations gave short presentations about their programs, and Fund members voted to determine how to distribute the grants.
“Because we combine our financial contributions, we are able to award large, single and multi-year grants to organizations that improve the lives of the most vulnerable women and children in our community,” said Karen Collias, Fund Co-Chair.
