Loudoun Now: 100WomenStrong Awards $475K in Nonprofit Grants

May 4, 2022

On Tuesday, 100WomenStrong announced the award of $475,000 to 42 nonprofits headquartered or providing services in Loudoun County, bringing its total contributions to $3.6million since 2009. 

The group reverted to its normal grant-giving cycle of once per year after pivoting in 2020 to COVID-19 emergency grants. COVID emergency grants were designed to meet the immediate essential and emergency needs of Loudoun County residents. During the pandemic, the organization gave more than $760,000 in 10 monthly rounds of funding and, in addition, created the “Pay it Forward” direct assistance loan program, which continues to offer help to area residents to cover basic expenses. 

Many of the nonprofit organizations’ 2022 grants are in support of affordable-housing initiatives.
