apply for grants

Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) invites Nebraska nonprofit organizations and University of Nebraska projects striving to address critical community needs or wishing to make a significant local or state impact to submit an online letter of inquiry by March 1.

WIN will award two grants this year of equal value. One grant will be awarded to a Nebraska charitable organization and another grant will be awarded to an organization or group directly affiliated with the University of Nebraska. Last year's awards were more than $75,000 each.

Qualifying Nebraska organizations must be designated as nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charities. Organizations and groups affiliated with the University of Nebraska are also strongly encouraged to submit inquiries. All organizations must submit an inquiry online by March 1 and will be notified thereafter regarding eligibility to submit a formal grant proposal.

"Women Investing in Nebraska is pleased to announce its second grant funding year," said Lisa Smith, chair of WIN's executive committee. "We especially hope to hear again from organizations with bold, innovative ideas or ventures."
