Core Grant-making at WFGM focuses on five areas: career development, job readiness, economic and financial literacy, nontraditional job training and entrepreneurship.


WFGM seeks to establish a stronger and long term sustainability of supportive services for women and children in the Memphis community through grantee agencies that provide career training and employment opportunities with a focus on wealth creation such as home ownership, good paying jobs with benefits, financial management, business ownership and investments. The goals of the core-grant making are to leverage WFGM's expertise and funding to provide opportunities to women and children.


The project funds an average of 30-35 programs, benefiting over 12,000 women and children annually. In 2012-2013, $630,000 was awarded to 33 programs. All projects are located in Memphis and Shelby County.

Long-Term Impact

Over 12,000 women and children will be assisted with finding resources needed to become economically self-sufficient.
