GREENSBORO, N.C. (March 15, 2013) — The Women to Women Endowment of The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro is now accepting letters of intent from local nonprofit organizations.

Women to Women’s Advisory Council announces the following goal for 2013:

Women to Women will focus its grantmaking in 2013 on a transformative program or project which has a focus on, or incorporates, the arts in the education of women and their families.  Women to Women welcomes letters of intent from any organization utilizing the arts as a conduit for outcome-based learning, aptitude improvement, and/or awareness of the humanities. 

A successful grant award should make a meaningful difference in the funded project, program or organization’s ability to do its work and accomplish its goals – and the outcome should create a positive impact and improvement in the lives of our area’s women and families.

The proposed grant request should be for up to $70,000 and support a one-year project.
