SisterFund partners with the Community Foundation to facilitate a grant process that fulfills our goal of supporting transformational change for our community. We hope to make it possible for an exciting, visionary concept to become an enduring initiative that transforms the lives of African American women and girls in the Richmond community.

While the financial investment of our members demonstrates our external impact, internally, our members are learning more about the needs of our communities through educational programs and grantee presentations. As women, we are empowered by this information, and by having a direct voice in making a difference in these areas of need.

Our Criteria

SisterFund seeks to fund transformational projects that:

  • Foster change and have a long-term positive impact on African American women and girls
  • Are programmatic and/or capital (i.e. building) in nature
  • Are new programs or expansions/improvements of existing programs that can change the way an organization or a community operates
  • Can demonstrate specific measurable goals

Our Process

SisterFund will receive proposals in August this year, and will select grant recipients in November. Our grant committee works closely with the membership and The Community Foundation to implement a seamless grant process. For more information about how to apply, please visit the Community Foundation website.
