The Mary Kay Foundation is committed to ending the epidemic of domestic violence by providing grants to women’s shelters and supporting community outreach programs throughout the United States. Each year, the Foundation’s Shelter Grant Program awards grants of $20,000 to at least one domestic violence shelter in every state; remaining funds are distributed based on state population. The grants provided by the Foundation may be used for the operating budget of the shelter, with the exception of staff travel.
The application deadline is June 30, 2010. Visit the Foundation’s website to review the funding guidelines and download the application forms.
