The San Diego Women’s Foundation releases health and human services grant guidelines

The San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF) recently released  its 2013 grant guidelines that focus on health and human services.  The guidelines, which are accessible online at, inform interested nonprofit organizations about the grants process, including submission of a Letter of Inquiry due Sept. 5, 2012.  In addition, The Foundation will host a Grant Seekers’ Forum on July 25 from 3 – 4:30 p.m. at The San Diego Foundation, 2508 Historic Decatur Road, San Diego 92106.  Now in its 13th year of operation, the San Diego Women’s Foundation members collectively pool their philanthropic dollars to make grants generating significant and sustainable impact in the San Diego region.

The San Diego Women’s Foundation’s grantmaking involves a rigorous process.  The first step is submitting a Letter of Inquiry.  Following member review, several organizations will be invited to submit full proposals.

“Through our research, SDWF understands that there are many priority needs in our community,” said Rita Solberg, president of The San Diego Women’s Foundation.  “By focusing our grant funds on collaborative programs that promote self-sufficiency, we believe that we have the greatest opportunity to enable significant impact.”

She added, “Because of our collective strength, we have granted more than $2.3 million to 63 impactful nonprofit programs and built a $2.4 million endowment since our founding 12 years ago.  What we have achieved as a group would have been unthinkable to do alone.”
