Change Maker Series

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio was founded on the belief that every person’s gift – of any amount – would influence change. The Women’s Fund Change Maker Series is an opportunity for you to explore your personal philanthropy, be intentional about discovering what issues you care about, and discover how you can make a difference with your time, talent, and treasure. From each session you will have the tools to be strategic and confident with how you inspire transformation in your own community.

This June, we will kick off the series with our first session, Philanthropy 101, and continue with our 201 and 301 sessions in the Fall. Look at each course description below to determine where you are in your journey!
