INTENTIONAL AND FOCUSED ON ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT AND LEADERSHIP FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS

CREATING MEASURABLE SOCIAL CHANGE IMPACT

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio is fiercely committed to igniting social change for the sake of gender equality. We spark conversations, connect people and organizations, and influence the opportunity for economic empowerment and leadership for women and girls. We provide the research to inform and affect policy, the tools to disrupt social norms, and the grants to build capacity.

A COMMUNITY OF CHANGE-MAKERS

We build connections between those who are driven to create more opportunities for women and girls, and give them the tools to change the world around them.

As a public foundation, we are a leader of social change in our community—addressing gender norms to create equality and to empower all women and girls to reach their full potential.

PART OF A GLOBAL NETWORK

Women’s funds across the country bring together funds, organizations, donors, and the women and girls we serve. For central Ohio, this takes the form of original events and grant workshops.

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio is 1 of 120 women’s funds connected to the Women’s Funding Network, the largest philanthropic network in the world devoted to women and girls. Together, our programs reach 21 countries across six continents and collectively invest more than $350 million annually in advancing women’s and girls’ rights both locally and globally. In fact, over one-third of us are funding international projects.

And we invest strongly within the United States, with 35% of organizations funding community and statewide projects and 15% funding nationwide projects.
