Grants for Individuals
The Fund for Women provides support for girls and women who would like to continue their education and pursue a path of empowerment, self-sufficiency and achievement of career goals. To that end, we offer two grants levels to address different academic challenges.
Achieve Grants – $2,500 grant awards, up to four scholarships awarded annually
FFW Educational Grants – $500 grants awards, up to ten scholarships awarded annually
Health and Wellness
In addition to educational grants, FFW sponsors grants that address the health and wellness needs of girls and women in the Southern Tier.
Barriers to Care Grants – Up to $500 in financial assistance to individual women currently receiving medical treatment for breast cancer to address barriers in getting to those treatments
Mary Alice Bosseler Wigs for Cancer Patients Fund
The intent of this fund is to give women with financial need a path forward if they feel a well-made wig would improve their outlook, safeguard their privacy, increase their self-confidence and provide them strength as they continue their recovery journey.
