How SDWF Works

We Are All in this Together!

SDWF members commit to $2,500 per year or $1,250 per year for those under 40 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.
