Loudoun-based 100WomenStrong will begin accepting Letters of Intent from area nonprofits Monday for 2017 grants.
The group is comprised of concerned philanthropists seeking to strategically invest in organizations and programs that enrich the lives of Loudoun County residents. Organizations that are headquartered or operate in Loudoun and wish to receive grant funds from 100WomenStrong in 2017 must file a preliminary Letter of Intent between Oct. 17 and Nov. 30.
Letters should be no more than one page long, should be in 11-point font or larger and should include: the name and purpose of nonprofit organization; the amount of grant request; how the grant money would be used; and how the project will make a difference to Loudoun and its residents. Letters should be emailed to lettersofIntent@onehundredwomenstrong.org as a PDF attachment with the name of the organization in the subject line of the email.
“Once we have vetted the Letters of Intent, we will ask specific groups to take the time to provide a full application and budget for what they hope to accomplish if they receive funding from us,” Vice President Lynn Rubin stated.
Applicants will be informed on or before Jan. 3, 2017, whether they have made it to the second stage of the process. Successful applicants will be sent further instructions and will be asked to submit a completed application by 5 p.m. Jan. 27.
