Spokane Mama Grants
The journey of motherhood is filled with joy, love, and challenges. In the midst of caring for others, it's essential for mamas to prioritize their own wellbeing. And this is so often forgotten...
Whether you're a single mom, a stay-at-home mom, or a working mom, our hope is that these grants for individual moms will nurturing your wellbeing, allowing you to flourish.
We provide small one-off grants to individuals who are Mamas of minor-aged children for the following:
1 / Wellbeing
These grants support your mental and physical health, and can be used for counseling, coaching, self-help books, fitness classes, and wellness workshops.
2 / Professional Development
These grants help mamas acquire a new skill, advance your career or transition to new field. They can be used to attend a workshop, class or program, or build a new resume.
3 / Social Connection
These grants enable mamas to attend and participate in social events which helps them 'build a village' of support.
Who may apply?
Any woman, or person identifying as a woman, who lives within Spokane County and is the primary caregiver of minor aged children - who without this support would either be unable to pay or likely not to participate due to cost.
Please note that while we adore our kiddos, our grants are to support you, the Mama.
