Women Inspired Network Grants

The Women Inspired Network, comprised of women throughout LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam Counties, has awarded more than $93,000 in the past seven years to local charitable organizations who support and enhance the lives of women and children in our region.


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.

Grant Funding

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 are available each year in September and can be submitted 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 a WIN meeting held in October.  All members are encouraged to attend, and guests are welcome. Grant funding will be awarded at the annual Celebration of Giving in early December.
