Money for Women is the oldest ongoing feminist granting agency. After Barbara Deming‘s death in 1984, we became a memorial fund. While other grant sources have come and gone, our fund is in its third decade. We are still feminist and still willing to take risks. The foundation gives encouragement and grants to individual feminists in the arts (writers and visual artists). The fund relies on a volunteer Board of Directors and carefully chosen writers to judge and collaborate in making awards.
