Thank you for your interest in applying to the Ojai Women’s Fund. Before you begin to fill out the application, we strongly advise you to read over the entire application. Please read the sections labeled Funding, Applicant Eligibility, and Award Criteria with care. If your grant proposal does not meet all the selection criteria listed in those three sections, the application will not be considered.

The selection criteria are designed to ensure that OWF grants satisfy our core mission. While the OWF may, from year-to-year, modify the criteria, the requirements in a given year are not negotiable.  Please do not apply if your proposal does not meet the criteria.

To download and complete the application parts, you will need to use Adobe Reader DC. If you do not have it installed, you can install it from the Adobe website.

The OWF is an all-volunteer collective giving circle dedicated to making grants on an annual basis to nonprofit organization that target critical needs in the Ojai Valley. After the OWF Grants Committee has researched and reviewed prospective grantees, donors will be given a selection ballot listing the top candidates. Final grantees are chosen from the ballot. Donors are either individuals or groups who give at least $1,000 to the Ojai Women’s Fund.  Each donor or group is entitled to one vote.
