November’s grant and award roundup includes opportunities from Womenetics, Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, TD Bank and Arbor Day Foundation, and our own Georgia Gives Day.


POW! Awards Nominations
Deadline: November 20, 2014
These awards honor purposeful female leaders of extraordinary intention and impact.  Womenetics looks for women who transform vision into action, surmount challenges, break down barriers, spark innovation and attain success in the workplace and the community. The POW! factor is displayed by women who are key “forces of nature.” These women transform the landscape of business, nonprofits or government. Fresh ideas and the ability to inspire put the POW! woman at the forefront of triggering change from within and challenging the status quo both in business and society.



Georgia Gives Day
Incentive and Prize Funds for Participating Nonprofits
Deadline: November 13, 2014
Don’t forget about our pool of more than $250,000 in incentive and prize funds for participating GA Gives Day nonprofits! From statewide to regional and cause-specific prizes, there are now more ways to win than ever!

Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta
Nonprofit Scholarships
Deadline: Ongoing
Scholarship opportunities are available for nonprofit staff and board members to attend professional and organizational development workshops and trainings (including GCN's Nonprofit University). Through this opportunity, The Community Foundation will cover the cost of attendance for workshops, trainings and conferences for selected programs. 

Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta
Nonprofit Toolbox
Deadline: Noon, November 12
The Nonprofit Toolbox is a program of The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta’s Common Good Funds and the Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund that provides nonprofit organizations with tools to strengthen their management, governance and operations. Nonprofit Toolbox awards are not financial grants; they are custom-designed packages of management consulting to help solve a key organizational challenge or problem. 

TD Bank and Arbor Day Foundation
TD Green Streets
Deadline: December 1
TD Green Streets supports innovative practices in community forestry. Through the program, municipalities are eligible to receive one of ten $20,000 grants in support of local forestry projects in low- to moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods.
