is an Atlanta-based foundation that began as friends and family of the Coca-Cola Company who wanted to support organizations that are making a difference in women's lives. Since its inception, the foundation has expanded to include all women who share its passion for improving the lives of others.
The foundation currently is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations that promote the well-being and future prospects of women and girls. A single grant of $100,000 will be awarded to an organization that promotes education, health, economic independence, social well-being, and/or human rights for women and girls. Preference will be given to programs and projects that can be fully funded by a $100,000 grant and are not reliant on other sources of funding to be successful.
To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, have been in operation for a minimum of three years, and have an annual operating budget of at least $500,000. ROH's first three recipients are located in Atlanta; however, the foundation's regional focus comprises Georgia and states contiguous to it.
