Women’s fund funds dreams

A group of women in the Triad area will provide grants to other local women with the goal of helping them pursue their dreams.

The Fondue Fund, a group of women who pool their time and treasure to benefit other women in the community, launched the “Fund a Woman’s Dream” effort early this year and will accept applications through Feb. 22.

Working with the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro, the fund will award grants ranging from $250 to $5,000 to fund ideas that have the power to transform applicants’ families and communities.

Examples of those ideas include, but are not limited to, launching a small business, returning to school, pursuing professional certification, or renting space in an art studio.

Grantees will be selected based on the feasibility of their idea, the passion and creativity behind it and the availability of resources.

The Fondue Fund giving circle was created in 2004 to encourage philanthropy by and for women in the Triad region.
