The Women’s Fund invests in efforts that address the root cause of a social problem and/or explore new approaches to solving an issue. These funding efforts go beyond providing direct service and create change in the larger system of how we live, work, and learn.

Our grant making priorities are targeted to create social change in economic empowerment and leadership for women and girls. We serve the central Ohio region of Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union counties.

Do these priorities resonate with your organization? Review the Letter of Intent Guidelines for more information below before submitting your Letter of Intent Application.
