The Women’s Fund is fiercely committed to being a transformational grantmaker in central Ohio for the sake of economic empowerment and leadership for women and girls.  Since 2001, we have awarded 230 grants totaling over $3.3 million to programs focused on social change for women and girls. This year, we are funding over $290,000 to 20 grant partners, which is our largest annual grants investment yet and a 10% increase over last year.

As we advance social change, we know that local organizations hold the key to opening the door to communities. The power of collective action creates lasting impact that not only works to disrupt social norms, but also gives women and girls the means to conquer barriers and amplify their voices to affect public policy.

This year, we will continue our multiyear grant partner pilot program, as well as support our annual grant partners as they drive social change for women and girls through advocacy, access to comprehensive, medically accurate sex education and contraception, and leadership development.

Empowering all women is at the core of our work and we know our partners’ values and initiatives mirror this vision. We are proud to work with them for the sake of equity.
