Pooled Fund Grants are awarded through a three-stage collaborative selection process and final membership vote. All submittals are reviewed carefully by the WGA Grant Committee verifying information submitted, weighing against WGA grant criteria, and subjectively evaluating community need and the likelihood of project outcomes.
The Women’s Gift Alliance guiding principle is to make a significant impact in the community through philanthropy. To achieve the goal, Women’s Gift Alliance members are asked to vote for Pooled Fund Grant Projects that demonstrate one or more of the following:
Enrich the fabric of the community;
Foster collaboration or partnership;
Address a community problem;
Create a bold new venture.
