The MMMF provides grants to women from developing countries to help further their education and strengthen their leadership skills to improve the lives of women and children in developing countries. Established in 1981, MMMF became a 501c3 public charitable corporation in 1989. MMMF has provided significant grants to over 200 women, totalling close to $1.7 million since it began. Women are studying in US, Canadian and South African universities; an expansion to Latin America is underway. To be eligible for a grant, women should have a track record of benefiting women and children, be committed to returning to their country or region to continue that work, and be at least 25 years old when using the grant. MMMF is currently trying to help alumnae of our program network with each other, especially where country or profession are common.
