MADISON, Wisconsin – YWCA Madison is accepting applications for Cohort 3 of Amplify Madison.
Amplify Madison funds collaborative professional development projects to build skill, voice, and visibility for all people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color working in the Madison region’s thriving local community organizations.
This year Amplify Madison will continue to fund opportunities for teams of women to participate in professional development opportunities of their choice, to then integrate their learning and wisdom from highly diverse frameworks and contexts to their work and the broader Madison community.
- All people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color interested in applying are welcome to apply by gathering themselves in teams of three people to collaborate on putting together an application for a total of up to $7500 to fund both, a professional development opportunity in which they would otherwise be unable to participate as well as community engagement activities.
Note: This year, due to the pandemia health crisis and the major shifts experienced in the families, organizations and relations as human beings and with nature, Amplify Madison has adapted to allow teams to respond to the new dynamics regarding social distancing and traveling. Due to the ever increasing availability of virtual self directed and virtual live professional development opportunities, Amplify Madison grants will now cover these types of offerings. That means teams have greater flexibility in planning community engagement activities to share their learning, experiences, and new wisdom to contribute to the transformation of the Madison community.
- All people that identify as women, including trans women and in particular women of color working in nonprofits, community organizations, neighborhood groups, faith communities, etc.
- Applications must be submitted by teams of three women, preferably racially diverse as well as collaborating across organizations and/or sectors for their proposal.
- Teams can include members from different roles at organizations, e.g. board members, direct service, volunteers, etc. Application from racially diverse, inter-organizational and/or cross sector teams are highly encouraged.
