Eligibility Criteria

Nonprofit organizations with paid staff operating in the region whose primary focus and mission-driven activities serve to benefit women and/or girls either through direct service, advocacy, public policy or capacity building are eligible to apply for funding from the Valentine Fund for Visionary Leadership.
