The Women’s Fund of the Eastern Shore was created through the power of collective philanthropy. Members work together to help change the lives of local women and girls.
By pooling our financial resources, we increase the impact of local programs serving girls in foster care, mothers in crisis, young women seeking job-readiness or leadership skills, and others who need a hand-up to be stronger, more self-sufficient forces for positive change in our community.
Each spring, The Women’s Fund focuses its grant making on programs addressing the unmet needs of women and/or girls on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore. Requests must articulate a direct and measurable benefit of this targeted population in Wicomico, Worcester, and/or Somerset County. The grant award maximum is $5,000.
