Grant Applications Now Accepted for Aura Cacia’s Positive Change Project Funding

Norway, Iowa (July 3, 2017) — Grant applications are now being accepted for funding from the Positive Change Project, Aura Cacia’s new social giving program.  The brand established the Positive Change Project in 2016 to help women and girls of courage and determination the support they need to transform their lives.

Nonprofit (501(c)(3)) tax-exempt organizations or grassroots groups serving women and girls are encouraged to apply for Positive Change Project Grants. Proposed projects must focus on equipping women and girls with the resources to further their commitment to live more purposeful lives. 

“No matter what your story is, your path toward the life you want isn’t meant to be walked alone,” said Aura Cacia Public Relations and Postive Change Project Grants Manager Anne Rierson.  “Aura Cacia is committed to surrounding women everywhere with opportunities to grow, discover and build meaningful connections with others.”

Positive Change Project applications will be accepted until Friday, Sept. 29, 2017. Successful applicants will receive a Positive Change Project funding allocation in January 2018 to run the calendar year.

Grant guidelines, funding priorities and the Positive Change Project Grant application are all available at

In 2017, consumer purchases made it possible for Aura Cacia to fund $230,000 in grants to six organizations.  These include organizations like N Street Village in Washington, D.C., which helps homeless and low-income women achieve stability, and Girls Educational & Mentoring Services in New York City, which helps girls and young women who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
