MFW is a private grant-making foundation located in Montclair.  Its grant-making is rooted in the history of the former YWCA of Montclair-North Essex, which provided support, encouragement, educational opportunities, recreation and safe housing for many African-American women and girls from the early 20th century until 1953, and for all women and girls in the Montclair area for 50 subsequent years.  When the YWCA closed in 2001, the Board used proceeds from the sale of the building to establish the Montclair Fund for Women. Since 2004, MFW has awarded over $600,000 to nonprofits working to improve the lives of women and children of color.

Applications are due July 21, 2017.  For full details please visit the MFW website at http://www.montclairfundforwomen.org/employment-opportunity.
