Unidas, a feminization of the Spanish word unidos (united), teaches young women and gender-expansive folks about leadership, philanthropy, and social justice issues through experience with grantmaking in their own community. A program of the Women’s Foundation for the State of Arizona, Unidas participants have researched and analyzed the social justice issues facing women, girls, and gender-expansive folks in our community.
Participants have created this request for proposal and will conduct the application review, site-visits and will select one organization to receive a grant of $5,000 for their grant focus area. The Women’s Foundation for the State of Arizona fosters equality and opportunity through support, advocacy, and research. To help all women and other marginalized identities overcome political, gender, and social barriers. We encourage reform in the social climate, promote change in conventional attitudes, and invest in organizations that strive for positive long-term changes.
Unidas participants are looking to invest $5,000 in one organization that focuses on sex education, with an emphasis on queer-affirming/inclusive, comprehensive sex education for the spring grant cycle.
All applications will be reviewed by Unidas teen participants. The second part of the review process will include a site visit/interview (via Zoom) with Unidas participants. Organizations should hold from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on the following dates for potential site visits: April 20 and April 27. The Unidas Program anticipates receiving more requests than can be funded. An invitation for a site visit is not a guarantee of funding but an indication on the part of Unidas that they are interested in learning more about the program.
Applications for the spring grant opportunity open on March 3, 2023 and close on April 5, 2023.
