The Mary Kay Foundation (TMKF) is currently accepting applications for the Domestic Violence Shelter Grant Program to deserving women’s domestic violence shelters across the United States.

The Mary Kay Foundation is committed to stopping the violence, breaking the silence and making a difference for these women and children.

Each year, the foundation award a grant to at least one domestic violence shelter in every state that applies.

Any remaining funds are distributed based on state population.

Applications are reviewed and recommended by the Domestic Violence Shelter Grant Committee.

After reviewing these recommendations, the Foundation selects final grant recipients.

Domestic violence shelter grant applications are available from January 15 to April 30 each year.

We announce grant recipients in the fall to coincide with National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
