Welcome to the BWFC 2023 Grant Submission Process

The 2021 Cause Grant Recipients are listed below. Please check their websites for more information.

In 2020, the Business Women of Fayette & Coweta released a survey to its membership about many items but mainly about our fundraising and cause selection process. In light of the response to the survey, the new 2020 Board of Advisors created a process for the BWFC to be able to give back to more organizations based on project needs.  It is always our goal to serve and support as many organizations as possible. In past years the BWFC has raised over $350,000 for organizations both in our local community and internationally. The 2021/2022 Grants will be distributed on Tuesday, April 26, 2021 at the Connect.
