Open Meadows Foundation is a grant-making organization seeking projects that promote gender/racial/economic justice. The projects must be led by and benefit women and girls, particularly those from vulnerable communities.

Open Meadows Foundation funds projects that do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity and expression, sexual identity and expression, age or ability. It offers grants up to $2000 to projects that:

* Are designed and implemented by women and girls;
* Reflect the diversity of the community served by the project in both
  its leadership and organization;
* Promote building community power; and
* Have limited financial access or have encountered obstacles
  in their search for funding.

All of the above guidelines are applied in considering funding.

*Organizational budget should not exceed $150,000.*

Small and start-up organizations are
strongly encouraged to apply.

Organizations will receive funding one time only.
