Foundation accepting grant applications
Hawaii Women’s Legal Foundation is accepting applications for its 2014 grant program from organizations and projects that help to improve the legal status and welfare of women and children in Hawaii.
The deadline for receipt of grant applications for October consideration is Sept. 5. HWLF typically awards grants in amounts ranging from $500 to $5,000.
HWLF prefers to make awards on a project-by-project basis or as a means to jump-start an organization’s funding sources. HWLF’s primary criteria in considering funding applications include improving women and children’s access to the legal system; reducing child abuse; reducing domestic violence; reducing sexual abuse; increasing financial independence; and improving women and children’s health, education and welfare.
