AT THE FOREFRONT OF SOCIAL CHANGE
A future where gender equality is the norm in life and work.
The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio is a public foundation whose mission is to transform the lives of women and girls by mobilizing the collective power and passion of all people working together.
Our work is informed by these values:
We believe that positive social change will come about only when barriers of gender, class, ethnicity, race, educational background, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, and faith traditions are overcome. Participation at the broadest level is the beacon of our work.
Enduring progress will be made by focusing on assets unique to the lives and work of women and girls. We strive to create a climate of empowerment in a community where many voices can contribute to the shaping of will and attitudes.
In our society, gender powerfully affects experience and opportunity. Through collaborations, The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio will honor traditional attributes of women and girls and at the same time pave new paths. All voices will be heard including those outside the mainstream to those silent voices within the mainstream.
