The Women Inspired Network is now taking applications for grant funding! This year’s available grant award is $8500.  Organizations may apply through any WIN Member – Give us a call at 815-252-2906 for assistance in connecting with a WIN Member. Giving focus is inspiring and empowering women and children.  The WIN Steering Committee will choose finalists to be presented at the next WIN meeting on July, 30, at Dickinson House in Oglesby at 5:30 pm.  July’s meeting will be an open forum, where all facets of the chosen applicants will be discussed among members. The finalists will then present their case for support at the following WIN meeting, on September, 24 where members will vote on which proposal(s) to fund for 2017.  This all leads up to our Celebration Gala in November, when the funds will be awarded. Don’t miss your chance to make a difference in Starved Rock Country and put grant money into a deserving  cause, organization or programs you believe in! 


Your unrestricted donation to the Leadership Fund for Now is just that, a gift for NOW. It enables us to operate, provides funds for immediate distribution to area agencies and charitable initiatives and helps us build the core administrative fund. The Leadership Fund for Now is made up of unrestricted donations, earnings on investments, and administrative fees. This is where we need your donation the most.
