Our 2016-2017 Grants Committee
Active Philanthropy and the Women's Board
The Women's Board raises substantial funds from its membership each year in its mission to serve the University of Chicago through active philanthropy. The Women’s Board selects diverse, critical projects to support from across the University through our Grants Committee. The Grants Committee is a diverse group of women our leadership convenes annually to meet for two days of intense delibration on which projects to fund. The committee hears proposals from across the University and decides where funding should be distributed based upon pre-set criteria.
These projects, ranging from faculty research, student life, arts and cultural institutions and community outreach efforts, are integral to University life and would go unfunded without our support. Learn more about the most recent grants we have funded here.
