Grants Advisory Committee (GAC)

GAC provides volunteers with the opportunity to participate in The Foundation’s unique grantmaking process. Serving as The Foundation’s “eyes and ears,” GAC members work in teams supported by Foundation staff, to review proposals from application organizations, conduct site visits, and make recommendations for funding. This approach, unique to The Foundation, allows us to leverage the talents of local women in finding and supporting effective community-driven programs.

For more information about GAC, please email programs@nywf.org.

Participatory Review Commitee (PRC)

PRC is a leadership opportunity for young women of color who want to expand their understanding of philanthropy and participate in our Young Women’s Initiative grantmaking process. PRC members work in teams under the leadership of The Foundation’s staff to review funding proposals and conduct site visits to applicant organizations. At the end of their visits, they make funding recommendations to the members of The New York City Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color. This committee allows New York City to have a voice in what solutions might be most effective for girls and young women of color in the city. In order to serve on the PRC members must be able to commit a total of 35 hours on phone calls, meetings, and visiting applicant organizations throughout the five boroughs.

To learn more about PRC, please email programs@NYWF.org.
