WFRI provides funds to organizations engaging in systems change with long term positive effects for women & girls in RI. This committee develops the job description, process, procedure, and timeline. It is made up mostly of volunteers who may or may not be part of the GRANT REVIEW Team in the coming months (who will review, process and recommend grants).
Appointments & Composition
The committee chair is a member of the Board. Members of the committee are recruited, who have deep knowledge of WFRI’s mission and are familiar with grantmaking using a gender lens. Usually, these individuals have been previous board members or long-time volunteers with WFRI.
Scope of Work
Meet in the months prior to the grant application being released to discuss grantmaking priorities and guidelines. Review all grant making and training material, and assist with training delivery.
