A Room Of Her Own Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering the vision of writer Virginia Woolf by bridging the often fatal gap between a woman’s economic reality and her artistic creation.

The foundation was formed in 2000 to provide innovative and practical arts patronage to women. Through our generous grant program and unique retreat experiences, A Room of Her Own Foundation works to educate the community about the work of female artists and writers.

The foundation provides practical help to award recipients in the form of professional guidance. We are committed to bringing important female voices, and the important creative work of women, into the spotlight.

The foundation provides annual Gift of Freedom grants of up to $50,000 to women with creative vision. It is the largest grant of its kind in the United States.
