About WFM Grants

The mission of the Women’s Foundation of Mississippi (WFM) is to ensure economic security for women. We are committed to helping Mississippi’s women and girls transcend our state’s dire social and economic barriers. By cultivating social change, we create long-term opportunity for personal stability, stronger families, and more resilient communities. We work to serve all women and girls throughout the state of Mississippi, particularly those who are most vulnerable. We use grant-making, advocacy, training programs, research, and community education and engagement to support three main focus areas: healthy women, access to education and career opportunities, and two-generation work. We do this because women have a greater opportunity for upward mobility and economic sustainability when they can plan for pregnancy, earn a degree or receive relevant job training, access quality child care, and pursue a viable career with a livable income.

If you have additional questions, please contact Latisha Latiker at [email protected]foundationms.org or 601-326-3002.
