Recent Grantees

Money for Women is the oldest ongoing feminist granting agency. While other grant sources have come and gone, our fund is in its fourth decade. We are still feminist and still willing to take risks. The fund gives encouragement and grants to individual feminists in the arts (writers, and visual artists). Our Award Notes newsletter, which lists the current and previous Money for Women/Barbara Deming Memorial Fund, Inc. grantees, is available for download and also posted in full below.
