g3 Grant Application Process


Girls Giving Grants solicits written proposals in September/October for programs or projects that specifically benefit youth in the greater Austin area. 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 either in-person or virtually for each finalist to complete their deliberations. Members vote for the grant recipient which is announced in April and awarded in a public ceremony.


When you are ready to complete your grant application, please access the g3 Grants Management System. ​ If you have questions, please email us at
