ABOUT THE WOMEN'S FUND

Elevating women. Advancing communities.

A woman in poverty tries to put the puzzle pieces together as best she can. She works with what she has, but sometimes she's missing a piece—missing an opportunity—and can only get so far.

Thirty-eight percent of female-headed households with children in our region live below the poverty line. The Women's Fund is changing this by investing in and advocating for solutions that create economic opportunity for women. 

We are the only foundation in the state investing solely in programs and policy to improve the lives of women and girls.

Our philanthropic dollars support organizations and initiatives that connect mothers and their children to the missing pieces necessary for economic security, including post-secondary education, job skills training, career counseling, quality childcare, transportation, and safe housing. These supports help women disrupt the cycle of poverty, move into higher wage jobs permanently, and create change that multiplies.
