The Womens Fund of Central Ohio is proud to make its largest annual grants investment to date with a total of $335,500 going to 28 grant partners in 2020. Programs awarded funding are creating social change for women and girls through economic empowerment and leadership development opportunities in central Ohio.  

The Womens Fund is deeply committed to increasing investments in programs that transform the lives of women of color. Through its recent unprecedented research report studying the wealth gap faced by central Ohio women, we found that a single black woman owns only 2 cents for every dollar owned by a single white man.

Moreover, industry data indicates that only 0.6% of national grantmaking dollars go to programs seeking to positively impact women of color. With this years grant slate, The Womens Fund will invest 47 times the national rate in organizations focused specifically on opportunities for women of color.
