2022 Thrive Grants

Women’s Fund of Central Indiana is committed to ensuring organizations that are led by people of color— and serve mostly women and girls of color— have an equal opportunity to receive funding. To accomplish this, the Women’s Fund Advisory Board set aside funds for and created the Thrive grant round. We are excited so many effective organizations applied for this historic round. Twelve organizations were approved for grants totaling $150,000. Thrive applicants were also eligible to apply for the 2022 Annual Round.
