Mark Your Calendars – Important Dates

The next few months will be busy for Women's Fund members! Here are the important dates leading to the selection of our new 2020-2021 grant recipients in March. 

  • Friday, March 5 - Ballot Information Package emailed to all 2020 Women's Fund members. This important package includes the information you need to know as you consider planning for your individual or group vote.

  • Wednesday, March 10 - 4:30-6 pm AND Thursday, March 11  –  9:30-11 am 
    Part One and Part Two Virtual Ballot Review Meetings. The Research committee will present half the candidates in each live meeting. We’re hosting two meetings so you don’t have to be on one Zoom event for three hours. You’ll want to attend both to make sure you learn about all the candidates. Both events will include presentations and opportunities for Q&A. And the good news is that everyone can attend; we are not limited by space constraints.

  • Thursday, March 11 - Ballots emailed by Survey Monkey to all eligible voters (Individual Members and voting Group Captains) with a link to cast electronic votes.

  • March 11-27 – Window for voting. Group Captains host meetings with their groups to discuss the ballot and decide on how to cast their group votes. Captains should start planning now to host virtual meetings for your group discussions.

  • Saturday, March 27, 6:00 PM - Deadline for electronic voting by eligible voters.

  • Wednesday, May 5 – Virtual Celebration of Grants! Save the date to help celebrate our new 2020-21 grantees. These nonprofits will join the more than 100 agency programs that have received nearly $8 million in Women's Fund grants since 2004.
