our application procedure

How to apply

All applications must be submitted using the Grant Application Forms, which can be downloaded from the links in the sections above.

Criteria for applications

Applications must be:

  • In line with, and supportive of, Another Way Women’s Foundation (AWWF)’s charitable purpose to support the relief of need, education and empowerment of women

  • UK-based

  • Not for profit

  • Not for self benefit

  • Aimed at having a positive impact on women in need and/or the community as a whole.


We will acknowledge your application by email once we have received it.

Applicants for the larger 'AWWF Grants' will be invited to a meeting with a couple of our team members (face-to-face or via Zoom) to chat about your application in more detail.

We aim to respond to all applications to say whether or not they have been successful within 4-6 weeks of the published closing date.


Our Steering Committee (comprising selected Trustees, members and volunteers) will review every application received, undertake due diligence checks, and filter out those that do not meet our grant criteria.

Depending on the number of applications we receive, we may not be able to award grants to every applicant, even if they meet the criteria.

We are not able to offer individual feedback on unsuccessful applications, other than that our funding aims will be to keep an even balance in the areas we support and to select projects to fund that we feel will have the greatest impact on women in need and/or the community as a whole.

Unsuccessful applicants may apply again.


Successful applicants can expect to receive funds within 2-3 weeks from hearing that their application has been awarded.

Grantee expectations

Recipients of grant funding will be required to report on how the money was spent and provide evidence to demonstrate the impact of the grant on women's lives.

In addition, grantees will be required to provide a photo and short testimonial for use on the Another Way Women’s Foundation website, with the intention to raise further awareness of cause.
