2022 Edition

The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio are committed to having a heart for God and living a life for others. We invite you to join with us in that commitment by submitting a project for our consideration.

Women are at the heart of their communities. The demands women face each day are many as are the challenges they encounter. For women living in economic poverty, the resources they need to succeed are often beyond their reach. These include education, economic opportunity, personal safety, healthcare and social services. By working with women, how can you make a difference in their lives and in the lives of those who are part of their communities?

The purpose of this initiative is to provide funding to develop and implement a project to serve economically poor women.

 These projects should incorporate:

  • Provide direct services for women; or
  • Advocate for policy change on an issue that directly impacts women

Funds may be used for project expenses such as:

  • Supplies, and goods to be distributed to women
  • Resource materials for women and/or advocacy
  • Office supplies
  • Travel stipends
  • Food/beverages for events

Funds MAY NOT be used for:

  • Student salaries or student stipends
