Have a program that focuses on improving the overall health and well-being of women or girls in the community? Apply for a grant from The Cookie Jar fund within Benton Community Foundation today!
The Cookie Jar is a collaboration of women working together to create a stronger community where women and girls are empowered to reach their full potential. We do this by sharing our resources…time, talent, and treasure…to offer programs focused on the needs of women and girls in Benton County. The Cookie Jar members have generously made gifts to help fund grant awards right here in our community; we expect to award a minimum of $10,000 this year.
Past recipients have tacked tough issues such as bullying, childhood hunger, teen pregnancy and much more! If your organization serves women or girls apply today! Visit The Cookie Jar page at www.bentoncf.org
for complete and application. Grant applications are due by Noon on Monday, October 6th
! Three finalists will be selected to present to Cookie Jar members at the annual Cookie Jar Soiree on November 6th, at which time grant awards will be announced.
Interested in joining The Cookie Jar? Memberships are being accepted until October 1st! Your tax-deductible contribution, of $100 or more, can make a big difference to women and girls. As a member, you will get a personal invitation to the Soiree and get a voice on what programs are funded this year. Donate online
