Bonner County non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply for a $10,000 grant offered by 101 Women Sandpoint.

101 Women Sandpoint is a non-profit funding organization that awards two, $10,000 grants per year to non-profit organizations that are located and operate in Bonner County. The group’s funding includes a wide focus area with only religious and political groups excluded.

Interested applications are asked to submit a simple online application by March 1 for the spring award or July 1 for the fall award.

Three applicants will be chosen from those that apply by the group’s grant committee through a weighted and judged system. These top three applicants will be asked to present their organization’s purpose and need for funding at 101 Women’s spring bi-annual meeting.

At the meeting, the 101 Women membership will then cast their votes to choose the winning organization that will receive the $10,000 grant award.

Since their formation two years ago, 101 Women Sandpoint have presented three area non-profits with grants totaling $30,000. Winners have included, Bonner Partners in Care, Sandpoint Area Seniors and Food for Our Children.

“101 Women is making a big, positive impact in our community through the joint efforts of many volunteers and philanthropic women,” said 101 Women Board Member, Jennifer Macdonald. “We encourage any Bonner County non-profit to apply for our grant by the March 1st deadline.”

101 Women Sandpoint is a membership group made up of 101 Bonner County women. The group leverages 101 smaller donations to create a sizable grant that is awarded to two worthwhile non-profits each year.

The group is limited to the first 101 women who join and the group is continually accepting and encouraging new members to register for future giving opportunities. Each member is required to donate $200 annually toward the grant awards and there is a yearly registration fee of $25 to help cover the group’s modest operating expenses.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for smaller donors to join forces to show their support for the community they love,” added MacDonald.

Member information and registration is available at the group’s website 101womensandpoint.com or by emailing 101womensandpoint@gmail.com.

Interested non-profit organizations can find information about the grant cycles as well as the application online at 101womensandpoint.com.
