Mary Kay Foundation is one of few funders who specifically look to support shelter for survivors of domestic violence. They really understand the need to support women and emergency housing. This was our third grant award in 10 years, so it's not something you can count on for regular support, but it was nice to have.

Reviewer 576 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2017

Applying for a grant from here is like playing the lottery. As a national grant program open to a wide range of eligible applicants, it is highly competitive. The application is rather long, and the task of recruiting Mary Kay partners in your network to write letters of recommendation adds more time. However, if you find extra time to send out applications in the spring, it can really pay off (as it did for us this year!).
