NEW GRANT FUNDING AVAILABLE
START WITH THE STATES: PATHWAY TO PARITY IN MICHIGAN, MISSISSIPPI, AND WASHINGTON
The Ascend Fund seeks proposals from organizations in Michigan, Mississippi, and Washington to increase the number of women serving in state legislatures.
We will invest in organizations that will:
build coalitions committed to gender parity;
identify and dismantle the barriers women face when running for office;
set state-specific strategy;
coordinate recruitment and training of candidates; and
amplify a message on the importance of women’s leadership and a reflective democracy.
Organizations may apply for up to $100,000 in support and typical awards will range from $30,000-$60,000. Applications are due August 13.
