These grants will support the survival of STEM programs, advocacy programs, leadership programs, entrepreneurship, and wage-negotiation classes.
“We understand that nonprofits are facing trying times due to the current crisis. During this time, WFM is more committed than ever to investing strategically in programs and initiatives we feel are making real economic progress for Montana women and girls,” said Jen Euell, WFM Program Director. “Our grants this year aren’t limited to supporting particular work, but rather are given in a spirit of mutual trust and support. We want grantees to use the funds for whatever they need to survive the crisis and come out strong on the other side. We truly are in this together.”
