Local environmental nonprofits applicable for $60K in grants

WILMINGTON — The Women’s Impact Network is calling for nonprofits to apply for $60,000 in grants.

Since 2012, the Women’s Impact Network (WIN) has provided money to multiple organizations that help better the community in education, health and wellness, environment, and arts and culture.

Last year grants focused on health and wellness, with $10,000 to $25,000 awarded to Planned Parenthood, NourishNC, and the NSEA Swim Foundation. This year’s grant cycle will focus on the environmental field. 

Applicants must be certified 501(c)(3) organizations, must not restrict any programs or activities to members of a particular faith and must not promote a specific religious doctrine, must operate in and serve New Hanover County, and must state that the organization does not serve a political purpose or support lobbying. 

Organizations who would like to apply are required to complete a letter of intent by March 8; it should include worthy projects and a plan for measurable impact. Based on the letter of intent, WIN will choose organizations on March 29 to move forward in the application process. The start of the application process can be found here

Recipients of the grant will be notified by May 13 and awarded at the WIN’s Grantee Celebration on May 16th.

WIN’s mission is centered around collective giving. The organization is made up of 100 community volunteers invested in positively impacting New Hanover County through their annual grant. Since the organization was founded, the grant pool and number of members has doubled. 

More information regarding the grants can be obtained by emailing win4nhcgrants@gmail.com, with “WIN Environment” in the subject line. Info can also be found on WIN’s website, https://winofnhc.org/DRAFT-Grants-Process
