WIN Grant Season Ending Soon

The Women Inspired Network, an initiative of the Starved Rock Country Community

Foundation, will award $13,500 in grant funding to one or more local charities again this


The organization, comprised of women throughout LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam

Counties, has awarded more than $67,000 in the past five years to local charitable

organizations who support and enhance the lives of women and children in our region.

The funds for the awards are contributed by members and friends of WIN throughout the

year and are then awarded through a competitive grant process. Applications for grant

funding can be submitted until 4 pm on September 30, 2022, by any non-profit organization

with a mission that includes empowering women and children to lead their best lives.

Applications for funding will be reviewed by the WIN Grant Review Team and finalists will

present their case for support at the next WIN meeting on October 12, 2022. All members

are encouraged to attend, and guests are welcome. Grant funding will be awarded at the

annual Celebration of Giving on November 13, 2022.

Ninety-six percent of the funds contributed throughout the year to the Network are returned

to the community through annual grants and used to grow the WIN Endowment which will

support women and children throughout Starved Rock Country in perpetuity.
