How to Request Funding

Funding Process

NMWC solicits applications from programs and projects that involve community organizing and/or economic development, educational support, seek to affect positive change in the community, provide opportunities for club members to volunteer, and empower local communities and their residents.

​                   NEW GRANT PROCESS ANNOUNCED FOR 2022-2023
We are excited to announce some significant changes to our grants process beginning with the 2023-2024 grant year. This in no way changes the disbursements planned for May 2023. 

Charities will no longer submit their application and accompanying material in January.  Going forward, the new application window begins June 1st (effective 2023) and closes July 15th. Monies will continue to be disbursed in May.  

There are additional changes:

  • Our grant focus will be on nonprofits which serve women, children and families. 

  • Gold, Silver, and Community Grants are no longer.  Instead, charities prioritized by the NMWC will receive grants up to their requested amount and up to what is available from our Fundraising efforts. There will be no cap on what a charity can request assuming a detailed budget is provided to explain the request.  

  •  Rotation requirements are eliminated. Charities are eligible for grants each year. The provision of a grant by the NMWC in any given year, however, does not entitle the receiving organization to any future grants. 

  • All charities receiving grants of $5,000 or more will be expected to provide reporting back to the NMWC after six months of receiving the grant including an actual grant budget report and answers related to the charity and/or project impact.

  • Application material and training will be available in the spring of 2022.  

If you have any immediate questions, you are welcome to contact us at and reference the Appropriations process.

We appreciate your patience as we make these changes.  We value your important missions and hard work improving and helping our community and we look forward to a long and continued partnership.
