RFP Women In Philanthropy

Women In Philanthropy (WIP) is an initiative of Martinsville Area Community Foundation. It is a member-driven group of women that will pool resources together to make large-impact grants to local non-profit organizations.

Grants Process

MACF will issue Requests for Proposals in June from local qualified charitable organizations.  Proposals must be at least a $10,000 request. Applications are due in July. A grants review meeting will be held for all WIP members. Proposals will be compiled into a voter's pamphlet and submitted to members for a vote. Ballots are mailed to all WIP members. The agency who receives the most votes will receive a large-impact grant of at least $10,000. Grants will be awarded at a special WIP event in September.


Applicants are required to submit proposals using our ONLINE application process. No paper applications will be accepted.
