2022 Grantmaking Cycle

The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio invests in organizations in central Ohio that are on the cutting edge of social change for women and girls. We strive to be a first funder and courageously invest in innovative ideas that others won’t fund because we know that women are the experts of their own lived experience. The Women’s Fund invests in efforts that address the root cause of a social problem 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.
