SPRINGFIELD - The Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts is inviting nonprofits that serve young women to apply, by midnight June 2, for $150,000 in funds over three years as a partner in a pilot program here designed to help this population succeed economically. Ellen T. Moorhouse, the fund's program officer, said the fund is seeking proposals from a "Springfield-based organization or collaborative of organizations serving young women to help guide implementation" of its Young Women's Initiative Springfield Partnership.

The fund is a member of a National Collaborative of Young Women's Initiatives under Kalisha Dessources, former policy advisor to the Obama White House Council on Women and Girls. Read more >>
