The Power of Your Investment

The Women’s Foundation of Southwest Florida employs a Strategic Grant Making Model as a broad umbrella, allocating funds to address specific needs of women and girls, with a defined impact in mind. This model may engage in many approaches—proactive, initiative, and collaborative grants can be considered strategic—as long as these approaches work toward creating a planned result. We shape our grant making program around the change or benefit we hope to accomplish, rather than making random grants. We take a look at the most pressing needs facing women and girls in Southwest Florida and discuss how our investment can bring about positive change. Our board, advisors, donors and staff plan and establish goals for funding programs, the types of grants we will make, and the outcomes we seek.
