g3 Grant Application Process

Application Review Committees (ARC), led by girl leaders, learn about current community needs, engage in collaborative discussions, and study the organizations and projects that have been submitted.
After a rigorous evaluation process, the membership selects two finalists and conducts site visits of each finalist to complete their deliberations. Members vote for the grant recipient which is announced in April and awarded in a public ceremony.
Girls Giving Grants reserves the right to reject an application for any reason, including a missed deadline or incomplete information.
