ROCK ISLAND, Ill., March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- March is Women's History Month and its 2014 theme celebrates women with courage and commitment. To celebrate strong women who make a difference, Royal Neighbors of America, one of the nation's largest women-led insurers, has announced its 2014 Nation of NeighborsSM Program grants that will award $100,000 to worthy women who strive to reach their dreams, pay it forward, and make a difference in their communities.

"Royal Neighbors of America has been empowering women for more than a century," says Cynthia Tidwell, President/CEO. "We encourage people to nominate other worthy individuals in their community who show character, courage, and commitment in making a difference in women's lives."

From a teenager's dream to publish a magazine to build self-esteem for high school girls, to initiatives that combat sex trafficking, bullying, or efforts to help shelter battered women, Royal Neighbors of America's Nation of Neighbors grants fund dreams and encourage women to change the world.  Since 2007, Royal Neighbors has awarded over $1.5 million to help nearly 1,200 families and individuals in reaching their goals and rebuilding their lives through the program. Members of Royal Neighbors can nominate worthy individuals on its website. An independent judging panel reviews each nomination and determines the recipients and the monetary amounts to be awarded. Grants are announced in the fall of 2014.

"We're proud of our Nation of Neighbors recipients because they so clearly demonstrate the neighbor-helping-neighbor philosophy that is the hallmark of our long history since 1895," adds Ms. Tidwell.

Royal Neighbors of America, one of the nation's largest women-led life insurance organizations, exists for the benefit of its members. It offers insurance products to fulfill financial needs of growth, savings, and protection. Members receive valuable benefits and can participate in volunteer activities through the organization's local chapters to help make a difference in their communities. The organization's philanthropic efforts are dedicated to changing women's lives through its national programs, including the Nation of NeighborsSM Program, and through the Royal Neighbors Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.

Headquartered in Rock Island, IL, with a branch office in Mesa, AZ, Royal Neighbors serves more than 200,000 members and is licensed to do business in 42 states and the District of Columbia.
