Eileen Fisher believes that by activating the natural leadership qualities within themselves, women and girls are able to find their voices, build inner strength, and develop the confidence to pursue what really matters.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to nonprofit organizations working to champion the activation of leadership qualities in women and girls. Preference will be given to programs that bring bring about self-discovery and personal transformation; help women and/or girls find their inner strength and trust their intuition; and/or address any phase of a woman's or girl's life.
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a program that fits the grant program’s overall theme and focus or be an individual who fits that description who has a (c)(3) fiscal sponsor.
