She will also forgo a book publicity tour to avoid using her government perch to promote her private product, the New York Times reported.
Trump's book, "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success", a book of advice for women in the workforce, is slated to come out May 2.
She hails the groups as "two innovative, forward-thinking organizations that have made it a priority to promote entrepreneurship and educational opportunities for women and girls in underserved communities".
For the first wave of grants, The National Urban League will receive a $100,000 grant to launch a new women's initiative, she said, and the Boys & Girls Club of America will also receive a $100,000 grant to be used for its national Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program for girls and underrepresented youth, she added. This decision gets out ahead of what could be an issue-a rarity in this White House-and supports causes that she has said she will champion in her White House role.
"Empowering women has been central to my mission throughout my career, and with my book, Women Who Work, I hope to do just that", Ivanka shared when explaining the book's mission. That entity will contribute a minimum $425,000 to the fund, which is the unpaid portion of the advance, net of expenses.
In the first round of grants, the charities will each receive $100,000. It will contribute all future royalties that are in excess of the advance to the fund during the period from May 1, 2017, to May 1, 2022, according to the statement.

The younger Trump is taking a different- and more up front -approach to charitable giving than her father has.
Last year, Trump skipped a Republican debate to raise money for veterans' charities. As she prepares for her first official trip overseas to Berlin next week, at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and settles into her new job in her father's administration, Ivanka is moving beyond the family's earlier ethical missteps, which they dismissed as the result of their adjusting to Washington's political realities.
The president's daughter has an office in the White House and an official role in her father's administration.
Isco winner takes Ronaldo-less Real six points clear
Real's stars should be fresh for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg match against Bayern at the Bernabeu. Though Real Madrid dominated possession from the start, creating good chances, it was Sporting that struck first.
