How SDWF Works

We Are All in this Together!

Grantmaking Focuses

SDWF members commit to $2,000 per year or $1,000 per year for those under 40. Members at both levels are asked to commit to a minimum of 5 years and we pool those resources to make grants into the San Diego region.

We Focus our Grantmaking.

Each year the Grants Committee selects one funding priority based on community research and evaluation.  Grant Guidelines are released in July of each year and SDWF’s process begins with a Letter of Inquiry process open to all nonprofit organizations that meet the stated criteria.

We Make a Significant Impact.

The power of many women giving together has a significant impact. By pooling our funds, we are able to respond to community-wide needs with focused grants.
