The Women’s & Girls’ Fund, a leadership program of the Kern Community Foundation, is taking applications for a total of up to $50,000 in grant allocations  to Kern County nonprofits serving local women or girls with education and training.

“Kern County is blessed with scores of nonprofits that work diligently and think outside the box to improve educational and training outcomes for women and girls," Fund Vision Committee Chair Cathy Bennett said in a news release. "I hope to see grant applications from many such agencies again this year.”

The first step in the competitive grant cycle is to submit a letter of intent through the Kern Community Foundation’s online grants platform by 5 p.m. Nov. 9. Organizations interested in applying should have a 501(c)(3) nonprofit designation or fiscal sponsor; they must have a presence in Kern and its initiatives must benefit women and/or girls in Kern.

Funding is typically for one year only. The maximum individual award is $25,000, and the total money to be awarded is $50,000.
